Default Question about Centos installation

Hi all
I tried to install Centos according to the howto's Centos setup. There are a couple of things that I don't understand.
Let's say I recive 2 IP's from my ISP, IP1 and IP2. when I click on edit (network settings part) and uncheck Configure using DHCP and give your network card a static IP address. Should I put my IP1 here for the static address?.
- IP for the netmask is something I'll recieve from my IPS, right?.
- Primary DNS will be IP1 and secondary DNS will be IP2, right?.

Sounds silly but I'm new to this stuff. I appreciate any help. Thank you

No. Your ISP should give you IP addresses of DNS servers, otherwise you can use the ones from the tutorial. These are working DNS servers.
