NetworkManager actually does support static IP addresses.  You configure
them the normal way your distribution does.  ie, in Fedora, you use
system-config-network which puts the config
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX.  NetworkManager loads this
information when it starts and uses the static IP, gateway, netmask, etc
for that interface from then on.
