Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Did you configure your gateway in /etc/sysconfig/network? This file contains your default gw information persistently. The way that you entered it is nonpersistently, which means it will go bye, bye on reboot.
Thanks for your help. However, nobody ever seems to just answer the question when I post this one. I think because it is a difficult question. If you must know, the gateway to that network isn't my default gateway. It is a little network in the back. The default gateway is to another net.
And I know, I could add a route to the main gateway to redirect to this other gateway, but I just want to do it at the Linux box, since it is the only machine connecting to this other network.
Is there a way to add this route persistently so it will stick around? Is it a switch for route (like -p on Wondoze), or must I modify a file somewhere?
script that is run on startup, and saw that it looked for that file. At first I was confused about the syntax. What it looks like is that the config file just does a 'route add -' and then appends any lines in the '/etc/sysconfig/static-routes' file that start with "any"
