assuming that your physical interface is already working at boot time and is
ifconfig hme0:1 plumb
ifconfig hme0:1 <ip address> [netmask <subnet mask>] [broadcast <broadcast
to get this to come up automatically at boot time:
echo "<hostname>" > /etc/hostname.hme0:1
add an entry to your hosts file for the hostname of the virtual interface
and it's ip address
ifconfig -a to make sure everything came up ok.

The ifconfig man page gave me this:
To assign multiple logical interfaces you have to first plumb the physical
ifconfig le0 plumb (for example)
This opens up the physical interface for TCP/IP streams. IF this has
already been done, go on to add your logical interfaces.
ifconfig le0:1 [ip address] [netmask] [parameters] for the first logical
ifconfig le1:2 [ip address].....etc....etc for the 2nd interface and so
on. I dont know the limit on how many logical interfaces you can have.
Now as to startup I am sure you can use a script in one of the rc#.d
directories to set up the ifconfig commands. I dont know if it has to be
system generated or if it exists already or if you have to make it.
