[CentOS] question on alias IPs using ifcfg-eth0:x

When using ifcfg-eth0:x files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/, should
each file (where x increments appropriately) point to DEVICE=eth0:x or
I apparently have my alias files all ifcfg-eth0:0 - ifcfg-eth0:7 show
DEVICE=eth0:0. Is this right? It seems odd to me and while it does
seem odd, the alias IPs are being appropriately responded to, answering
pings and nameserver requests.
The output of /sbin/ifconfig is what clued me in to the fact that I may
well have done this wrong. This output showed eth0 and eth0:0 only.
Suggestions are welcome and much appreciated.
