Well, my network file has nothing regarding the gateway, except for GATEWAYDEV=eth0, as recommended here. I removed that line, rebooted, and still could get to the internet. The only constant factor in getting to the internet is the default route I see when I boot or route add -net default gw 192.168.50.1 dev eth0 (not network restart).

Tried it, didn't work. Now that its been explained what the 169.254.0.0 route is, I'm not really concerned.

All in all, its not a show stopper, but a). I'd like to be able to restart the network and have things working correctly, b). its just not right, and I can't leave it alone! <grin>. Plus I'm learning from all this... thanks again to everyone for help and suggestions. Here are my various scripts, etc...
