Problem with multiple locations on Laptop

Hi, I am new to the group and linux, have been playing around for a while but now am spending more time trying to get to grips with the system. I currently am trying to set up a server at home and run dhcp to enable me to plug my laptop in with no hassels. (Using ubuntu 5.10 on both machines) All is going well except that I am unable to set up different network locations on the laptop?  I use a fixed IP at work so need to re-enter all network settings every time I plug in at the office. Does anyone have any suggestions for me.
