The netmask of failover IP's is 255.255.255.255 and the main IP is 255.255.255.0.

That's it. As for the NFS mount warnings, don't worry about those - they're just a notification.
netmask 255.255.255.255 ? but netmask of main ip is 255.255.255.0

Run the command twice sometimes fixes some of these warnings :P

im using Debian lenny and ive added my extra ip's as below to

/etc/network/interfaces


Code:
auto eth0:0
iface eth0:0 inet static
	address 94.23.xx.xx1
	netmask 255.255.255.0
	broadcast 91.xxx.xxx.xxx

auto eth0:1
iface eth0:1 inet static
	address 94.23.xx.xx2
	netmask 255.255.255.0
	broadcast 91.xxx.xxx.xxx

then ive restarted networking /etc/init.d/networking restart

when restart networking im getting this error
