How to configure a range of IP-addresses for a network interface card?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

Is it possible to configure a range of IP-addresses for a network interface card instead if creating lots of single /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:<N> files?
Can this method be used to accept two different ranges?
