    eth0:9 is a sub interface of eth0

    the 169 address is what an interface is assigned until it successfully
    polls a DHCP server for an address.

    sub interfaces are only dependent on their parent in that the parent
    interface must be enabled/up. It doesn't matter if it has an IP or not.

    well on my network the problems with the ip that hosts the dhcp server for wireless clients..

    if you use the mandrake control center to reconfigure the network with the correct ipaddress it sorts it out, no more sub interface....
