IP alias in ifconfig

I need to connect two ip addresses from the router to the only port eth0 on my machine.

I get on bootup the eth0 configured to one address and manually have to enter the command
ifconfig eth0:0
from a terminal to attach the second.

How can I do this on bootup that would be the normal practice for Suse, rather than the rclogin file?

In YAST Control centre under the settings for your network card, advanced options has the option for adding additional ip-addresses to an interface.
