How to add vlan without vconfig command?

view story

http://serverfault.com – Is there any way how to create vlan interface without using vconfig ? I have only KVM console and trunk port connected to the machine, so I cannot use apt as I do not have internet access. I defined vlans in /etc/network/interfaces but it does not work as vlan interfaces are not created. Thanks. EDIT: Resolved ;) ip link add link eth0 name eth0.5 type vlan id 5 (HowTos)
