Normally you just hit 'reply' or 'reply all'.  Somehow you got
an extra set of >'s added.  Are you getting a digest copy instead
of individual messages?

You want the default to go to the internet via the DSL router.

The question is, can you add the route to the mainframe to it?  Then
everything else can use it as the default route and not need to know
anything else.

I've had a Linux dhcp server running for years - it is very reliable.

The biggest problem is that you can only have one dhcp server
running per network.  That means that if keep running it on the
dsl router you'll have to figure out how to make it send the
extra options you need for net booting.  It probably can do
it if you can find the right place for the settings.
