yes, this is possible. look for "ip aliasing support" when compiling the
kernel (don't know if this is standard for suse kernels)
then you can assign eth0:0 to ip and eth0:1 to ip

of course! you just have to tell the program to bind to the specific
interface! (depends on the program)

port space is always different for several ip's
