Do you have an additional port on your NIC? If so, 'ifconfig eth1 <ip address> <netmask> up'

You may add a second ip address to the eth0.
# ifconfig eth0:eggdrop inet <your-addr-here> netmask <net-mask-here>
In the above you create a alias "eggdrop" to eth0. May be you want some more "neutral" alias, so, just use "eth0:1".
