Hum, I set it up with "Edit Connections..." and I could log out and log
in as another user and still had the static IP.  But after a reboot it
went back to using dhcp for eth0.

I'm leaving the Connect automatically and System setting checked and
selecting Manual from the IPv4 Settings tab and adding my address,
netmask, gateway and DNS.

Is there something I'm failing to do to have it survive a reboot?
