Default Assigning router IP

just curious as to how i can make my home server (just an old P4 with a few HDD's in it) running XP always have the same (static) router IP? its at 192.168.2.28
the server PC is on a switch and the switch is attached to the router/modem bell speedstream 6520. :)

Assign it to use static ips not dynamic.
