Mick, as with all of these sorts of queries, it would really help if you
let us know (at least some of)
1. what you already attempted,
2. which howto guides you followed,
3. what the results were,
4. what you didn't understand
etc etc

You'll get better help far more quickly that way. Just sayin.

What were your search terms on google. I found about 6 guides almost
immediately using 'fedora 16 static ip'.

This should be a fairly straightforward process (in fact Dave has posted
a link to a fairly detailed HOWTO for the commandline/config file approach.

Alternatively, you should be able to do this via the NetworkManager Icon
on the panel.

here's a link on doing that:
