Maybe you know what function the columns on `Route' tab of
redhat-config-network do?
They appear to be clickable but apparently do nothing
Destination Network     Prefix (Netmask)  Gateway

And what role does the checkbox under column Profile on main interface

Maybe I'm especially dull this morning, but wondered if you mind
laying down the steps involved in what you quoted.

In particular this part has me somewhat mystified:

Add `netprofile=profilename' is clear but the duplicating and
changing is confusing.
