Two IPs on one NIC

does any DHCP client handle being given 2 addresses by DHCP?

I thought the original request asked for DHCP from 2 ranges to be given..
2 addresses can be handed out (and more!) from DHCPD but as far as I'm aware
the client will check which address is valid for the link its on and
then use it.... so unless its a case of 1 DHCP address and one static, then
cant see this working

(under linux, the 'simple' was is eg

DHCP for eth0
static address for eth0.0
