What in happening to my route table???


I am still having problems sharing my internet connection .

I deleted and added routes to my route table. When i type route -n, it shows the following information.

Code:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
192.168.1.5     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.255 UH    0      0        0 eth1
203.218.41.254  0.0.0.0         255.255.255.255 UH    0      0        0 ppp0
192.168.1.7     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.255 UH    0      0        0 eth2
127.0.0.0       0.0.0.0         255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo
0.0.0.0         203.218.41.254  0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 ppp0
Internet sharing doesn't work.

After adding and deleting routes, i typed 'service network restart'. After restarting, i typed route -n again and this showed up.

Code:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
203.218.41.254  0.0.0.0         255.255.255.255 UH    0      0        0 ppp0

127.0.0.0       0.0.0.0         255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo

What's going on? Am i doing it correctly?

I am trying to share my internet with 2 Win XPs using Redhat 9.0 as gateway. Both Win XPs are connected to the Redhat 9.0 directly using cross cables. Win XP is connected to one lan card (eth2), the other one is connected to another Lan Card (eth2).

Here is my Ifconfig
