adding ip on centos

hello,
I usually add extra ips to the Centos server by editing

vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0-range0

then adding

IPADDR_START=72.5.2.1
IPADDR_END=72.5.2.8
CLONENUM_START=0
NETMASK=255.255.255.0

but now i got different ips like

72.5.2.1
72.6.8.5
72.7.6.6
72.8.6.8

what do I do now?

Could you post the output of
ls /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0*
/sbin/ifconfig -a

arnoldCommented:
copy ifcfg-eth0 as ifcfg-eth0:1 and add settings there
the :1 references an index which will have the IP.
Setting multiple IPs from different segments could be trouble as your example has public IPs, i.e. the path an outgoing packet may take will depend on how you configure your routing/firewall if any to make sure that a packet that came in on one IP leaves taking the same path.
(tagging)
YOu could add the entry into /etc/rc.local

/sbin/ifconfig eth0:1 72.6.8.5 netmask 255.255.255.0  metric y broadcast 72.6.8.z up

repeat the above altering the index and the IP/broadcast/metric as you see fit.
You may need to use route to add entry to the routing table to handle the traffic originating from 72.6.8.5 through the suitable gateway for this IP.

The metric will assign control which path a packet takes to the remote side.

The lower the metric, the higher the preference for this path
netstat -rn will display the routing table on the system.

-(01:14 22 PM)-(root@alpha)-(~) $ /sbin/ifconfig eth0:1 72.6.8.5 netmask 255.255.255.0  metric y broadcast 72.6.8.z up
SIOCSIFMETRIC: Operation not supported

what if I do this?

vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:1

DEVICE=eth0:1
BOOTPROTO=static
HWADDR=00:30:48:5A:24:54
IPADDR=72.6.8.5
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
ONBOOT=yes

replace z with 255
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:1 72.6.8.5 netmask 255.255.255.0  metric y broadcast 72.6.8.255 up

I did exactly the same thing on my last post and it worked..

is that okay? I can keep doing the same thing for

vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:1
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:2
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:3

etc..
