Default I must be doing something wrong

OK, so i'm trying to assign three ip's to this machine on the same nic card, so i go into /etc/network/interfaces and alther things there.

I don't know why, but when i change eth0 to eth0:0 things go badly.
Here's how it sets now,

Quote:
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 24.182.139.77
netmask 255.255.255.248
network 24.182.139.72
broadcast 24.182.139.79
gateway 24.182.139.73
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
dns-nameservers 24.217.0.5
dns-search arwenspets.com

#auto eth0:1
#iface eth0:1 inet static
# address 24.182.139.76
# netmask 255.255.255.248
# network 24.182.139.72
# broadcast 24.182.139.79
# gateway 24.182.139.73
# # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
# dns-nameservers 24.217.0.5
# dns-search arwenspets.com
#
#auto eth0:2
#iface eth0:2 inet static
# address 24.182.139.75
# netmask 255.255.255.248
# network 24.182.139.72
# broadcast 24.182.139.79
# gateway 24.182.139.73
# # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
# dns-nameservers 24.217.0.5
# dns-search arwenspets.coms
now if i change the first eth0 to eth0:0 the machine is unreachable.
This is a debian install, if that makes a difference.
Is there something else i should be doing, is there some other file that needs altered?
