What version of net-tools do you have installed?  Under both current
Woody and current RedHat, it does.

I can't recommend highly enough that you learn some basic scripting
skills.  It'll multiply what you can do with your system by orders of
magnitude, even after what you'd learn from a single one-week shell
scripting course or "learn bash in 24 hours" kind of book.

In this case, you're wanting to do something that isn't very broadly
requested; a simple script could make it happen, but without it, you are
stuck.  Perhaps someone else will oblige you with a script, though.
