Hello folks!
the book says in configuring the network scripts:
This directory should contain files in the form of, where “xyz”
is a network interface name (such as eth0 or eth0:1).

but if i want to use eth0:1 it doesnt work at all, because ip cant find that
interface. i dont know if that "bug" is known but how can i change the
ifup/ifdown-scripts to keep track of a second ip-address for an interface?

thank u for any comments!
