Adding an additional Public IP Block on my Cisco 2801 Router

I have a Cisco 2801 Router that connects me to the ISP.  This Router also does NAT/PAT, Firewall, VPN, etc.

As you can see below by looking at my interface configurations, I only have a /30 block of IP addresses.  We are getting an application on one of our servers that require a static NAT.  Since I don't have any IP addresses, my ISP just assigned me an additional block of IP's which is a /29 block.  So I have my WAN connection, which is a /30 block, and I have my public rout-able IP block which is a /29 block.  How do I configure my router for this additional IP Block?  Behind my 2801 router its a cisco 2950 switch.  The router is connected to the switch via interface FastEthernet0/0.  Should I add a secondary IP from the /29 block to interface FastEthernet0/3/0.1?  See interface configurations below:  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.  I only had to add one IP Address in the block as a secondary.  For the network devices that required a Static NAT, I just entered the Static NAT and all worked fine.  Thanks.
