If you're running on Gentoo, Fedora, or SUSE, then you can use the
normal system config tools to set up the static IP for an interface, and
NM will use that config for the interface.  Debian/Ubuntu has some
support, but I think it's broken right now, though I could be wrong.

So for Fedora, you'd run system-config-network and create the
configuration for your eth0, for example.  Or, you could just
edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0.  Restart NetworkManager,
and it will use that config.
