sadly, the RHEL networking scripts are still rooted in the old school 
ipconfig methods, rather than the newer ip addr / ip route / ... 
functionality.    if I'm going to do that level of routing, I pretty 
much setup the RHOS/CentOS stuff just to setup the basic interfaces, 
then roll my own script, typically launched from /etc/rc.d/rc.local or 
maybe in a proper init.d script.
