Are you sure it's necessary in all the cases? My bootscripts don't contain
any reference to "route", and the ethernet interface is perfectly usable.
The output of the command "/sbin/route" is :
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
hipDb.grolier.f * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
localnet * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
loopback localhost 255.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 lo
default hipDb.grolier.f 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 ppp0
Where you see that the default route has been added by ppp.
Do you know when setting a default route through eth0 is mandatory ?
