Question Adding persistent(permanent) route entries on Red hat Linux 7.1

Hi there,
We have a subnetted network and the Linux system which has mail configured, is sitting on the parent network.In order to reach the different subnets(for the web-based mail), route entries were added on the Linux system. But it was noticed that once the system was restarted all the route entries vanished.Is there any command to add persistent(permanent) route entries in Linux like we have in Windows [( route -p add ......) where this p stands for persistent.].

That's a good question - I've never seen a "persistent" option for linux. Your best bet is to add the routing commands to one of the rc scripts run at system boot (like /etc/init.d/network in RH).
