It worked for me

I never though it would be so difficult. I tried several
ideas from a Google search and 100% of then failed! I think it
must be VERY hard to get Ubuntu set up to ask for and get a
single IP address.

Success! I changed the process a bit in that I installed
wicd instead of just deleting network manager. Wanted
something that would work...

Here is my file now:
karl@Jaunty:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
# auto lo
# iface lo inet loopback
# iface eth0 inet static
# address 192.168.2.6
# netmask 255.255.255.0
#gateway 192.168.0.1

#auto eth0

auto lo
auto eth1
auto eth0

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth1 inet dhcp
iface eth0 inet static

address 192.168.2.6
netmask 255.255.255.0

When I run ifconfig I get:

karl@Jaunty:~$ sudo ifconfig
[sudo] password for karl:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1f:d0:51:a9:21
inet addr:192.168.2.2

Alas, this is the address the router assigned. So it is still
not a success.
