Not quite...eth0:0 and cipcb0 have the same IP. eth0 is the CIPE carrier
IP. My earlier description was probably a bit confusing.

Like I mentioned above, I'm actually doing the opposite of this...will this
be stable, or does it run into the same problem? If I have to, I'll put
another physical interface in this machine, but I'd like to avoid using up
another switch port if I can.
