/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

If you are using Slackware 9.1, the network configuration is split up into two files, rc.inet1 and rc.inet1.conf. Unfortunately, these do not support multiple ip addresses per interface, so you will have to muck about in rc.inet1, just as you will in earlier Slackware versions.

Edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 and add the relevant ifconfig directives there, preferably alongside the already present ifconfigs.

There should be a line in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 that looks something like this:
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 ${IPADDR} broadcast ${BROADCAST} netmask ${NETMASK}
You can add a line under that with something like this:
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:0 [put 2nd IP here] broadcast [put broadcast here] netmask [put netmask here]
If you needed another IP you can add another line, just make the interface eth0:1 and so on.

(please specify distributions when asking configuration questions)

In Debian, and probably other major distributions, network addresses are controlled through the /etc/network/interfaces file. Just add:
auto ethx:y # (where x is the card # and y is the alias number)
iface ethx:y inet static # if this is dhcp, change static to dhcp and leave the rest out
address 555.555.555.555
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 555.555.555.0
broadcast 555.555.555.255

You can then use "ifup ethx:y" to test this, and the auto line indicates that it will be run on boot.
You should probably not DHCP for more than one alias, as you'll just confuse the DHCP server.

It doesn't work :-( here is a sample of my /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 file:

/sbin/ifconfig eth${1} ${IPADDR[$1]} broadcast ${BROADCAST} netmask ${NETMASK[$1]}
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:0 192.168.1.1 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0

My eth0 work on DHCP

put these information in /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0:0 192.168.1.1 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0

/sbin/ifconfig eth0:1 192.168.2.1 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
