How do I do it in Mythbuntu 8.04?  I got so fed up and frustrated with 
the video driver issues in 8.10 that I just nuked the box and put 8.04 
back on.  Now it comes up as DHCP, and when I go into the Network 
Manager (under "Applications->System->Network") and configure the Wired 
Connection there, it doesn't take.  I have to select Unlock then I 
configure it, but it appears that the IP I assign doesn't get assigned.  
If I right click on the Network icon on the top right, the "Connection 
Information" menu item is grayed out.  From a terminal, I type "sudo 
ifconfig" and the static IP I assigned doesn't show up for eth0.  If I 
ping the IP, it says "network unreachable".
