Looks fine to me; from your first posting, I simply hadn't sen where you
were connecting up the DSL line. 

Whether this approach would work for the original poster is uncertain. I've
never tried IP-aliasing an interface that runs PPPoE, so I don't know if the
two are compatible. (With PPPoE, the eth* interface itself doesn't get an IP
address; software like the Roaring Penguin package runs a PPP session on it
that gets assigned an IP address dynamically.)
