I just got RH 7.2 runing with a pppow adsl connection to the internet.

The problem is that on bootup the system brings up the eth0 and ppp0 interfaces OK but leaves the default route on eth0. I can delete this route then add ppp0 manualy and every thing seems to work.
How do I get the system to build the default route automaicaly when the the DLS line comes up?

I have
DEFAULTROUTE=yes
in pppoe.conf and
DEFROUTE=yes
in ifcgf-ppp0
