Very Easy: TCP/IP config in Linux

I've configured my TCP/IP using the Network applet in the RedHat Control Panel in X.
 I can ping my local router but nothing beyond it -- I guess I need to tell linux that THIS is a router. When can I do that?

Thank you for answering my question. While in discussion, I've found a way od doing that myself, but there are two things:
 a. Sometimes the deault route disappears and I have to add it again.
 b. What's the metric 1 for?

  If you answer these questions I'l accept your answer.
  Thanx again, Roman
