Which Unix? How many network cards do you have?

Removing an IP address may be as easy as commenting it out of /etc/hosts & rebooting, or it may be in (OS specific) configuration files.

Adding addresses will be similar - do you want multiple addresses on the same NIC?

In general, you can assign more that one IP address to your machine, that is if you have a Secondary Network Interface (qe ports; ie; qe0, qe1, qe2, etc) installed and configured in your system, this is aside from your Primary Network Interface (hme0 or le0).  

Lets say you have two Secondary Network Interface that you want to configure: (qe0 and qe1)

Edit your entry in /etc/hosts file and create a hostname.qe0, hostname.qe1 file in your system's /etc directory.  If you will notice, you have an existing /etc/hostname.hme0 file.  This is now your primary network interface which is initially configured in your system.

Example Data Entry of Files to Configure:

1.  /etc/hosname.hme0
     server_name
2. /etc/hostname.qe0
     server_name-00
3. /etc/hostname.qe1
     server_name-01
4. /etc/hosts
     127.0.0.1           localhost
     1.111.111.10     server_name       loghost
     1.111.111.11     server_name-00
     1.111.111.12     server_name-01
