Cisco CUE ISM 0/0 can't add IP address

I'm trying to get my router ready to install ciscu unified express.  I'm trying to follow some instructions at but when i try to add an ip address to my ism0/0 interface i get the error message that the ip address may not be configured on L2 links.  I also don't see the commands unnumbered under the ism0/0 interface either.  The card i'm using is  ISM-SRE-300-K9
