Unhappy how do I preserve my virtual interfaces on suse 10.3?

My samba server has to serve 4 subnets, I configured the smb.conf well, However when I reboot my system All the virtual interfaces fade off. I have even tried to put the ifcfg-eth0:1 and so on scripts in the network scripts directory but it's not woking at all.
I read some where and they talked about the route.conf and the rc.conf file but these files are no where to be found in suse 10.3 specifically.

Can you please help me with a brighter way of doing this all thing out?

I'm not sure how you're putting in your interfaces.

I run multiple virtual interfaces on openSuse, and got them there through yast config.

Network devices -> Network card -> (select card) -> configure -> from here you can "add" additional addresses

Mine don't get lost on reboot (I figure you must be doing it a harder way than you need to, and it's probably the wrong way to do it on suse -- use yast in preference to config files.)

So you have the sub interfaces working, but the routing won't stay ? I think that is what your post says..
