You will need to do some initial set up ... but then just leave it alone. You just do not use the functions available and leave them as defaults - I have a few "managed" switches around and in most cases the are acting as "unmanaged".
On problem with that switch is that it is primarily just 10/100Mbit ... Have a look at SG 102-24 (also called SR2024CT) has a full complement of 1000Mbit ports ...
