How do i save my routing table?

My laptop boots with fedora 5. i change my routing table but after rebooting my system obtain a new ip from the dhscp server and aaaall other routes are being deleted.Im also connected to a wireless interface for which i also insert appropriate routing addresses. How can i save the routing table i want so after rebooting will remain unchanged?

And another question.How can i test ONLY from my console if i have an internet connection? With which command? For example test my connectivity to the internet by trying connecting with google web page.

Many thanks!!!

1 ; Maybe you could write a shell script to change your routing table at startup?

2 ; I'm not sure what you mean but...maybe netstat, ping, and traceroute might help.
