I've been poking around the network config in CentOS 5 recently.  In that
OS, specifying GATEWAY in the ifcfg-eth1 script should not be a problem
(although possibly not exactly desired) - it scans those files as well when
setting up the default route.  Does it make a difference if you specify
--gateway= before --device?  (never tried that myself, so don't know if it's
supposed to work).
