On RedHat/Centos I use this trick: http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/RangeOfIpsOnEthxYou could create a customized rc file (I personally use rc.local) which will be run at boot. You could then use #!/bin/sh and a 'for' loop to create the devices. IMHO, this solution is a lot uglier than 30 extra lines in rc.conf.
If this is a contiguous range of IPs, then use the ipv4_addrs_ifN construct, which you can read all about in rc.conf(5). Eg:
ipv4_addrs_em0="192.168.64.33-63/24" Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 7 Priory Courtyard Flat 3 PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Ramsgate Kent, CT11 9PW
