Ahh, I found where my confusion was... linuxconf apparently was in 
control of the default gateway, and setting it with netcfg ( and 
restarting networking, etc.) didn't matter a hill of beans to it 
for some reason. I take it netcfg and linuxconf use different 
config files? Anybody know which file(s) linuxconf uses for 
networking stuff?  Or am I (again) way off base? I'd rather use an 
editor, so I know what is really happening there.
