I'm looking to at a /22 to eth0 in addition to the address that is already bound to than interface. I'm familiar with using ifcfg-eth0-range0 in Redhat to accomplish something like this, but not how to do it in SuSE 11 without adding each IP address individually (which will take some time with a little over 1000 addresses!)

Anyone know how to do this?

Wait, you're really having a single server answer 1,000 IP addresses? That seems...unusual. – Michael Hampton Jan 7 '13 at 14:59
I don't disagree there, it's just the way the company I work for does things. We have a PMTA server that sends out newsletters. Each client gets their own IP to send from off the box. – rkalajian Jan 7 '13 at 15:10
For now I've manually edited ifup-eth0 to add all the aliases I need. Would still love to know if there's a way to add a range instead of adding each IP indivdually. – rkalajian Jan 7 '13 at 19:35
