Assigning site-local ipv6 address to an interface


i want to assign an ipv6 address to an interface (eth0)
i successfully assigned it using "ifconfig etho add ipv6address"
but i wanted it that it should have a particular site-local address on bootup. so...

i modified the /etc/sysconfig/network file and added NETWORKING_IPV6="yes" line in it. now i dont have to "modprobe ipv6" everytime.

next i modified /etc/sysconfig/newtwork-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file
and added the following lines in it

and after rebooting there are two addresses to eth0 interface. one link local and one site local address.

so the big question is "how can i set ONLY the site local address?"

thanks in advance
