chmod  +x change_ip.sh
./change_ip.sh  <New IP>
#!/bin/bash

NEW_IP=$1
IFCFG_FILE=/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

# remove the old IP address
sed '/^IPADDR=/d'  $IFCFG_FILE  > /tmp/ifcfg-eth0_$$

# Add new IP address 
echo "IPADDR=$NEW_IP" >>  /tmp/ifcfg-eth0_$$ 

# Backup the old file
/bin/mv  $IFCFG_FILE  ${IFCFG_FILE}.old

/bin/cp -f  /tmp/ifcfg-eth0_$$  $IFCFG_FILE

/bin/rm -f /tmp/ifcfg-eth0_$$

Or make is shorter

perl -i.bak -pe 's/IPADDR=.*/IPADDR=<NEW IP>/g'   /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
  where replace <NEW IP> to actual IP like 192.168.0.123
