While it is true that the 2.1 install does ask about the gateway, the
frequency with which people with small private LANs find themselves unable
to get ppp working because they have default routes they don't need
indicates that this part of the install is still confusing.  It still leads
the new user to believe that she must choose between a LAN connection and
ppp, for example.
