The "easiest" way is to read this...
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-aliases

The create a file called...
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0-range0

Containing something like...
IPADDR_START=xxx.xxx.xxx.131
IPADDR_END=xxx.xxx.xxx.191
BROADCAST=xxx.xxx.xxx.191
NETWORK=xxx.xxx.xxx.128
CLONENUM_START=1
NETMASK=255.255.255.192
#NO_ALIASROUTING=YES

This has been around forever, but is very hard to find if looking for it. The 
ifup-aliases script has lots of comments to help you understand what to put 
in.
