Virtual Interfaces, Bridging, TUN, TAP question for KVM setup (ubuntu server 9.04)

I have little/no experience with /etc/network/interfaces so I could use a little help.

I'm trying to setup a KVM mirror at home of what might be an eventual physical setup of servers

-1 nic
-physical network
-server local virtual network
-host physical server has real IP (eth0) & local IP (eth0:1)
-host supplies DNS, and DHCP for the network which eventually will be a mix of servers, workstations and wirelessly connected PCs

I need a bridge/tun/tap setup but all I can find online is configs for one network and nothing for the two network setup I'm trying to build... Please help me - a bit lost here.

Here's my very basic interfaces file:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0 eth0:1

iface eth0 inet static

iface eth0:1 inet static
thanks in advance for any advice...
