Ok. SIOCADDRT is the ioctl call which adds a route. My guess is that the
error comes when the script is trying to add the default route, i.e. the
default gateway that's specified isn't reachable on the network your
ethernet card is connected to (at least according to the route that's set
for the card). Why don't you send along your /etc/init.d/network and
perhaps the output of 'ifconfig' and 'netstat -nr' after the networks
script has run.

Ok, well if that's helping you not get nasty messages then that's gotta be
a good thing, right!
