ifconfig eth0 x.x.x.x netmask x.x.x.x up
where x = your IP and subnet address

But it is only temporary sollution. After reboot you loose your IP.
In Suse you can use Yast or you can set data in directory /etc/sysconfig/network/ files (ifcfg-eth0) by editing them.

I only need it to retain this address long enough to get POP3/IMAP clients to download their data then the box can go away.
