Debian vs RedHat config question.

Take a look in /etc/network - look at the interfaces file specifically. Do
a "man interfaces" for more info.
Essentially, you can define commands to be run when an interface is brought
up or down, so you would add a few "route add ..." type statements to the up
portion, and "route del ..." to the down portion.
Pretty simple actually, and nicely tied to the individual interfaces.

Rick Niles - I just remembered, Progeny (http://www.progeny.com) is a Debian
based distro, and supposedly very nice install-wise and desktop wise. Much
more so than raw Debian. I'll bet they would be willing to help you package
up the BProc/Scyld stuff, and probably quicker than the Debian effort too.

Subject: Debian vs RedHat config question.
I've been using RedHat 6.2 of the past year to build clusters and tinker
with. Recently I've taken the plunge into Debian (Potato-2.2r3) world and I
find that some of the configuration is good bit different. In particular,
I'm looking for an analogy in Debian. In RedHat 6.2 (it may be different in
7.x), there is a file "/etc/sysconfig/static-routes" that helps bring up the
network routing very cleanly. This file has worked quite well for me in
RedHat's boot and network initialization scripts. However, I cannot find a
similar solution in Debian. Can anyone help? If I find I cannot live
without the file I may need to port the RH6.2 config scripts to mesh with my
Georgia Southern University
