Just add NM_CONTROLLED=no in the ifcfg-eth0:1 and ifcfg-eth0:2 so on. NetworkManager will leave them alone.
EDIT: If you are not running NM, no harm done in adding NM_CONTROLLED variable. See my next post.
I am running F8 and F9 servers with static IPs, with NetworkManager and init level 3. Your statement about login to run NM is wrong *. I don't use gui config as they are quite limited in functionality.
NM does work with both DHCP and static IP.
EDIT: * NM is run as a service.
