Using virtual interface with dhcpd v3.0.5

I'm migrating a working dhcpd setup from a Solaris 9 box running v3.0p11 
to a RHEL 5 box running v3.0.5.  We listen on 2 addresses (same subnet) 
using a virtual interface.

This morning we copied the conf and lease files and started the server 
on the new machine.  It was processing DHCPDISCOVER requests on our eth1 
interface, but not on the virtual eth1:1 interface.  Both interfaces 
were processing DHCPREQUESTs.

Any thoughts on what we need to do to get this working again?

Also, can I put "eth1 eth1:1" on the startup command line, or is "eth1"
