Virtual Interfaces

Right now I'm trying to configure ubuntu 10 to have one physical interface and one virtual interface.
The physical interface is assigned a static ip address, but we need the vitrual to get an address from DHCP.

Here's a dump of the /etc/network/interfaces:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

auto eth0:1
iface eth0:1 inet dhcp

The physical address with this configuration get's it's IP address, but the virtual one doesn't.

When we set the physical interface to dhcp, both get an ip address successfully from dhcp.

Any help would be appreciated.
