static-routes in Mandrake 10.0

Two quick and easy questions:

Does Mandrake 10.0 use the /etc/sysconfig/static-routes file if it is configured?

If YES, why do no scripts in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory look for this file? Where is the script that makes use of it?

You could guess correctly that it isn't working for me.

OK, I found out how to use static-routes in Mandrake 10.0. My static routes file needed to have the following layout:

any net netmask eth0

But I'm not sure why I use the keyword "any" and then I have to include the interface name at the end. What is the meaning of the keyword "any?" I would have assumed "any" interface. But apparrently not...

Issue resolved. Sorry for the trouble.
