Need an eth0:1 temporarily, howto?

CRS is catching up with me I believe.

What is the invocation of ifconfig that will bring me up a working eth0:1 at 
an address of

One that will let me ping dd-wrt at its std address on a 
different 192.168.xx.xx subnet from the regular eth0 .

I've apparently nuked my dd-wrt install on an x86 box, and I need to talk to 
it via the eth0:1 address long enough to configure it to work with a *&%$# 
cable modem that marries itself to the first MAC address it see's.

Thanks folks.

Cheers, Gene
