If you've got the alias patches for 1.2.13, or having a newer kernel with
aliasing built-it, you just deal with the aliased device as if it were a real
device, appending :x to it.
For example, to give eth0 an alias, ifconfig the eth:0 device. You can have
more than one alias as well: eth:0, eth0:1, eth0:2, etc.

If you use this method, make sure you have a kernel with ip forwarding
