The next thing we need to do is to set the network with your static IP addresses. First, edit the /etc/network/interfaces to include the following.
# /etc/network/interfaces auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
This assumes you want the ethernet card on eth0 configured. After this, we need to configure the primary and secondary DNS servers
# /etc/resolve.conf nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
After these are set, you need to restart the networking
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
