Under kernel 2.2, you don't need to explicitly add routes to a
particular host/net; it automatically binds each interface to its
subnet, unless you specify multiple interfaces on the same subnet, in
which case the first is the default route to that subnet.
Eg: if I do "ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0", and
"ifconfig eth0:0 10.0.22.5 netmask 255.0.0.0" then I
automatically get a route to 192.168.1.0/24 through eth0, and one to
10.0.0.0/8 through eth0:0
It's a good idea, in these days of classless delegation, to always
explicitly add a netmask to your ifconfig commands, the defaults may not
be correct, and you end up with bad routes and broadcast addresses.
