There is a way using device aliases. You can assign an alias to your eth0 device which will get its own IP address assigned, seperate from the real eth0.

the alias device would be named something like this:
or eth0:1

you can have a number of these. Essentially they just point the same device, but each can have a slightly different configuration.

Try the following page: Look at the bottom of the page at 8.2.4. Alias and Clone Files

Hope this helps, let me know if it resolves the issue.
