Please do not top post.
255.255.255.248 gives you a total of 8 IPs, not 10, of which usually you
loose 3 for the network, broadcast and gw addresses.
You can assign those 5 in a range file without problems, you can also
specify the netmask like in a "normal" cfg file. It shouldn't be needed to
specify other settings.
Where I work we'd route the additional subnet through the IP you already
have on the server, thus allowing you to allocate _all_ 8 IPs as a range
on the loopback interface with a /32 netmask. See if your ISP can do this
