Virtual Hosting Aliases with FreeBSD 5.2

I'm trying to setup multiple IP boxes using FreeBSD 5.2-Release.
If I enter the ifconfig sis0 alias0 inet x.x.x.x 255.255.255.255
I get a bad value error.
Similarly, if I put it in /etc/rc.conf with the prerequisite underscores
and reboot the machine, the resulting ifconfig -a only shows the primary IP
Did the procedure change in the 5.x series? A look at the FreeBSD
handbook on line still shows this to be the way to accomplish this:
I found that I can use ifconfig sis0 inet x.x.x.x 255.255.255.255 alias.
It will add one additional IP to the system, but if I try to add two, I lock
up the Ethernet connection. (I've now got to drive back down to the co-lo
facility and reboot two of the machines because of it.)
Anyone else ran into this issue? Anyone found the solution? Thanks in
