How can I create device aliases using the Network Administration Tool?

Issue

Device aliases are virtual devices associated with the same physical hardware, but they can be activated at the same time to have different IP addresses. They are commonly represented as the device name followed by a colon and a number (for example, eth0:1). They are useful if you want to have multiple IP address for a system, but the system only has one network card.
