To set up a static IP address edit /etc/network/interfaces so that it looks something like this:
# The primary network interface allow-hotplug eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.46.3 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.46.0 broadcast 192.168.46.255 gateway 192.168.46.1
Then use the commands:
ifdown eth0 ifup eth0
You can see your network adapters and IP addresses with ifconfig. You can restart networking with sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart. You can change a hostname by editing /etc/hostname. I'd restart afterwards, then you can check your hostname with the hostname command.
