how to add multiple ip addresses to a single NIC on Windows 2008R2

I'm running two multisite, meaning multiple sub domains handled by the same  WordPress sites on a server using 2 NIC's, each with it's own IP address. Each domain name points to a different IP address.

I have seen references to multi homed or virtual IP addresses on E-E but most links are outdated and no longer work.

Does any one know how to create additional IP addresses so I can expand the number of websites? The server is vastly underutilized and it would be great if I can add more web sites on that same server.

Thanks,

Rolf

Both work and thank you to DirkMare for making it fool proof.

It worked like a charm and as an extra bonus and I discovered that I can create multiple (single) WP sites on the same IP address I added like you have always been able to do in ISS, except that I have a url rewriter for the multisite WordPress domain on the the IP/NIC already in place. (In other words *.domain.name all get's picked up by the same IP address / url rewriter / WP site)
