Exclamation Default route problem.. (typical)


I have RH 8.0 and an ADSL connection. The computer its a 'server' for 10 computers, so it have JUST one eth (eth0) and the ppp0 (no eth1..), ok the problem:

When I type pppd to connect (well its adsl-start, its the same, I also tried pppd before) I get this message:

Oct 13 04:49:32 servidor pppd[1860]: not replacing existing default route to eth0 []

So I look for info and I tried:

1. Add the line: defaultroute to /etc/ppp/options <-- no good results
2. Remove the GATEWAY= from /etc/sysconfig/network <-- no good results


What can I do to make default route the ppp0? or how can i solve it?
