I'm afraid these options don't quite look right. It's more likely you'd want:

ifconfig eth0:0 netmask

The value you tried to set for "network" is your broadcast address, while the 
"broadcast" value you gave is the netmask. There is no network option for 
ifconfig, as both that and broadcast can be derived from the IP address and 
netmask. There is, however, a broadcast option in case you want to broadcast 
on the 0 address instead of the more common 255.
