IP aliases not working under 2.2 on RH 5.2 bootup

I've got my Red Hat 5.2 system with all the rpm updated
for kernel 2.2 and I have kernel 2.2.3 running.
I'm using IP aliasing on my private lan with the addresses: (primary IP) (aliased IP)
When I activate it via the control-panel->netconf (or netcfg; I forget)
the alias is made fine and it works. I have the config at boot set
and it just doesn't want to work. It says that the kernel
does not have support for IP aliasing when I try to do this.
I've got IP aliasing built into the kernel and not as a module.

The weird part is that if I go into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
and run "./ifup eth0:0" the alias works. This seems like its a red hat
specific problem with the boot scripts but I can't seem to figure out
how to fix it. Has anyone observed this?
