        Ok.  Hmm.  I guess the only thing is, the "proper" way to eg.
create virtual interfaces on a Redhat box is to create a file called eg.
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0-range0 and add the appropriate
contents, and then restart the network service.  Is there some way to also
incorporate this idea?
