My appologies

NOTE : The -p switch is not supported on either Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition-based, Microsoft Windows 98-based, or Microsoft Windows 95-based computers.

in this case you would need to fool the OS into doing it every time it boots

open notepad

put in the following lines

@echo off
route add <network> mask <subnet> <next hop ip>


Save the file (change text files to "all files" on the save as type box and save it as route.bat in the startup folder, that way every time you boot the route is remapped, its a crude workaround but it works.
