Fedora Core 5 networking

Argh... I just wasted lots of time trying to figure out why a new FC5 installation was able to see the local network but not access anything past my router. As it turns out, all I needed to do was add the following to /etc/sysconfig/network and restart the network:

GATEWAY=192.168.80.1

I have another FC5 machine here that wasn't having any problems and it didn't have this line in its network file. However, it had DHCP setup instead of a manual IP. Next time I'll know...
