Question Building a linux router

we have a basic rh7.3 system up and running with basic routing functionality through static routes in the tables and using forwarding. i would like to complicate this a bit by running a protocol, such as RIP or IGRP (more likely RIP), on our embedded system. i have heard of programs such as zebra, gated, and routed. i have also heard that you have to get a routing daemon and compile it into the kernel.

any info is greatly appreciated on this. thx

p.s. oh, think small here (embedded), so nothing big and bulky.

advanced routing is an option when compiling your own personal kernel.

Check the menuconfig for some nice options.
