I haven't been following this thread, but I think you need to first add
your gateway as a host in your routing table before the route command will
allow you add it as the default route. I'm not on a Linux box right now,
so I can't try it. I'll give it a try when I get home tonight.
BTW, this behavior may have been "fixed" in more recent versions of route.
