This is what you need to configure in your kernel.  Use y and not m.

Then when you boot, you should see a device in /sys/class/net.  It may 
be p4p1 or something else.

You should have a file /etc/sysconfig/ifconfig.eth0

ONBOOT=yes
IFACE=p4p1
SERVICE=ipv4-static
IP=10.0.1.2   # Change to 10.0.1.x to not conflict with other systems
GATEWAY=10.0.1.1
PREFIX=24
BROADCAST=10.0.1.255

Generally a 10.x.x.x network has PREFIX=8 and BROADCAST=10.255.255.255, 
but  PREFIX=24 works too.

If the system device is not eth0, then you only need to change the IFACE 
value to what the system found.  That can be changed to eth0 later if 
desired.
