you can do it manually by these steps:

- make a copy of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 in the same place and name it ifcfg-eth0:0. I.E. you will have 2 file ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-eth0:0 in /etc/sysconfig/network-srcipts
- Open the new created file change these field
any other fileds if exist could be safely deleted.

Here I assume that eth0 is the interface where you want to add the secondary IP, eth0:0 is device for new IP. After making changes, restart network service for new configuration applied.

Hope it help!
