configure default route

where is the default rotue configured on boot? i have 2 nics (eth0 and eth1) and for some reason it will always set the default route to the gw of eth1 and i want it to be eth0. is there a way to configure which nic/gw is used for the default route?

1. make sure this line is in /etc/sysconfig/network
of course eth0 is the nic with the gateway on it

2. in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
for each device config file (ifcfg-ethX) that is not a gateway, make sure there is not a
line in it, and for the device that is a gateway, make sure that line exists.
