using the dialup - backup connectivity

Leased line failure, had to go back to dialup for a week. Dnj helped PB to locate the modem in the server room itself, with a long telephone cable connection over lan cable laid in just 30 minutes. kppp on krishna connected OK, but for the connection to work, the eth1 had to be disabled - it had the default gateway. For using from another machine, connected over eth1 - like me, for example, instead of disabling eth1, just commented out the
line in /etc/sysconfig/network . Since I'd also commented out (actually deleted) the line
after the leased line came back online, I had to restore it using drakconf and later disable shorewall.
