If you have two interfaces then you should get eth0 and eth1, then to create a virtual IP on eth1 you should follow fosiul01 steps above.

If you only have one interface and want to create another ip for is just follow the steps

Incase you have two interfaces and you are only seeing on of them , then you should look for a driver for it
