Unhappy Edgy Server installation Configution

Help Please: I am attempting to set up an Unbuntu Linux server for the first time and following the "The PrefectSetup Unbuntu 6.10 server documentation." On step 5 which changes IP setting from DHCP to an static address. I can't seem to get pass this point. I enter the command "vi /etc/network/interfaces" which brings up my current DCHP configuration file. I use the arrow key to move the selection I need to edit as indicated in the setup instruction. After editing the file I type "/etc/init.d/networking restart" and nothing happens. And I'm stuck right here. And I am sure I logged on with a su root account which the correct premission to make changes and such. Help Please

What happens exactly when you execute "/etc/init.d/networking restart"?

Are you working directly on the system or through an SSH client like PuTTY? If the latter, you'll lose the connection when you change the system's IP address. I think that's why you think that nothing happens. You need to re-connect to the system using its new IP address.
