I have three routes on this particular machine, one is a static route to 
the internet via our default gw, then we have another static route to 
network "b" through gateway "b". Finally there is a "static" route to 
network "c" though router "c" which has a failover line to it via router 
"d", router c is giving out rip1 updates when the main line goes down so 
that the server will switch to router d. 

Did that make sense?
