Having the GATEWAY field in either the ifcfg-ethX files or in /etc/sysconofig/network is the older way of setting the default route.

No, you got it wrong,

he was talking about that route-ethX, not ifcfg-ethX, supports NETMASK, 
ADDRESS, GATEWAY (in separate lines) format. I used it from 2006. You 
can add as much routes that way as you please:
