Need to configure Cisco 7204 interface to listen on multiple IP blocks

I have a Cisco 7204 and need to configure one of the interfaces to listen on two IP blocks. The interface in question is FastEthernet0/0. I am not sure how to add a second IP address and gateway without overwriting the first set. Below is a snippet of the #show config. Right now I just have one IP route sending all traffic out the Serial2/0 interface. This router is sitting outside a firewall, so there should be no need for any fancy configuration.
interface FastEthernet0/0
 ip address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
 duplex full
 speed auto
 no mop enabled
interface FastEthernet0/1
 no ip address
 duplex auto
 speed auto
interface Serial2/0
 ip address aaa.aaa.aaa.aaa
 encapsulation ppp
 dsu bandwidth 44210
 framing c-bit
 cablelength 4
 serial restart-delay 0
ip default-gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (xxx IP block's gateway)
ip route Serial2/0
no ip http server
no ip http secure-server

Use the secondary keyword.

interface FastEthernet0/0
 ip address xxx.xxx.xxx.yyy secondary

The gateway will remain the same via the Serial interface since I'm assuming your ISP is routing that new block to your serial interface.
