That depends upon whether you are running classful or classless routing. If running classless, it also depends upon whether or not you have the 'ip subnet-zero' option enabled. If running classful, not.
Also, with that subnet mask, .15 would be a broadcast address and cannot be used for a host address.

So, if I were running Rip V2, EIGRP or OSPF, I could have a 198.142.26.2/28 address?

Steve, great question. If you are studying for the Cisco CCNA exam, then yes, they are now valid. Pre- 2005 exams would have considered those invalid. As the other posts mention, this is the ip subnet-zero command, which is on by default starting in IOS version 12.1. Cheers! Todd Lammle

Yes, if the ip subnet-zero feature was enabled.
Type it at the global configuration prompt.
