When IP aliases are created in linuxconf it makes files 
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, however these ifcfg files will not 
work. They have no device line and therefore will not bring the virtual 
interface up. 

Also, when a range of addresses is specified the range designation such as is placed in the first virtual device file as the IP 

It would be nice if a selection could be made whether to start these 
interfaces on boot or not.

You can't bring a virtual interface up without the "real" interface it goes
with.  The next time eth0 is brought up (either at boot or manually), the
virtual interfaces will come up.
