of course you hit me with the windows question :)

in theory(and without having a win2k box in front of me), it should be

win2k box and you can't do it.. once you set the primary interface to
DHCP, all the 'virtual' address' you set up in the advanced thing have
to use DHCP as well.. thats kinda lame. *shrug*.. sorry ol :)

you could probably get away with it on any unix OS though
