	I just got this working...  Pretty nifty feature if you ask me...

	It's kept in linux/.config .  I believe that make config actually
looks at your current kernel to figure out a default if you don't already
have a .config..  I say this because every time I compile a fresh kernel
it already has 'Y' on the correct network card.  Also, you should be able 
just modify the line or two in that file to turn on ip aliasing, given a 
working kernel source (ie. one that finds your network card.)

Just my $.02
