debian now handles all the setup in /etc/network/interfaces.
iface eth0 inet static
BUT, a temporary default route to the internet will be setup along the
workings of ppp (???) so I don't have to do anything. Uhm, you see i'm
not quite sure & may be should shut up (anybody else?). This is because
i have setup ipchains to forward any non-local adress to ppp.
