It very much depends on if he bought a routed subnet or bought 8
individual IPs.  It's very possible the OP _does_ have 8 IPs to play
with but, because it's not a subnet, he may need to configure them

(I had a friend who bought 4 IPs from BellAtlantic DSL in the late 90s
 that were 4 available IPs and not a routed subnet; his OpenBSD firewall
 machine would proxy-arp for the Windows machines sitting behind it)
