[vox-tech] changing static IP block

WOW, I just won a free year of Sonic.net at the highest speed they can 
provide (in some cases up to 30Mps) by twittering a few times and 
including #sonicnet in the twitter (still open for a few days, they award 
once a day)

Anyway, I will flipping my old OLD many-grandfathered original PacBell 
setup of /29 IPs for a new 8-ip block from Sonic (besides kicking my speed 
up many notches). *sigh* two servers (Debian Etch, 5 home computers on a 
network, router, reverse IP options, a dozen domains on half a dozen 
different register services. And apparently I will be gaining wifi ability 
with the new equipment. Im feeling abit overwhelmed.

I dont use GUI's or menus. I prefer to know what is where and why. OK so 
at the moment the /etc/network/interfaces looks like this.
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
name Ethernet LAN card

I have to edit that file and do a ifdown eth0 followed by ifup eth0.
I did a sudo grep for files that had the IP in it in the /etc directory. 
/etc/exim4 (a number of files)

Does anything else come to anyones mind? 
Anywhere else I should grep for the old IP? Some central storage of config 
files other than /etc?
