Same here.  I just got a good deal on an athlon & MB,  and as I was rebuilding my
server,  I realized my modem was ISA and all my slots were PCI.  I hooked my
phone line up to anther box with a builtin modem, and tried to decipher my old
Caldera scripts to add the gateway, to no avail.  Ended up adding a /sbin/route
line to ethnet in  an if statement to make it do nothing if there's no gateway
