In suse linux 9.1 I've two network card, the first is eth0 ( and the second is the eth1 ( I desire to add a new card and mantain the previous two, as eth1:1 and address.
If I write ifconfig eth1:1 netmask 255.255.255. gw it add a new nic, but what is the right way? this or add via YaST module (as a virtual ip address from the configuration panel)?
finally I desire to turn on or turn off manually the nic number 3 (eth1:1)

From what I can see, eth1:0 and eth1:1 are aliases to the same card, i.e eth1, so I reckon the third card has to be eth2. I know it's possible to BOND 2 cards to the same IP address range. Whether your scheme would work can only be a suck it and see case, but it's doubtful and looks slightly odd.
