[SLE] routing problem

Hi, all. I've almost got everything working, but my ppp connection has a
weird, and very inconvenient problem. Once it starts up, I can get to any
machine (including resolving names and so on) except those on my own
subnet! Very inconvenient. Here's as much information as I know how to
my route.conf file looks like this:
xxx.xx.xxx.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.254.0 eth0
xxx.xx.xxx.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.254.0 ppp0
The two addresses are the same, because I'm trying to connect to the same
place at the end. Ethernet works fine, by the way. I set things up this
way based on some messages on this list a while ago (before I joined).
When I first start up using wvdial, the command "route" gives the
Dest Gateway Genmask Flags .... Iface
xxx.xx.xx.x * 255.255.255.255 UH ppp0
tel126.96.36.199 * 255.255.254.0 U eth0
loopback ... U
default xxx.xx.xx.x 0.0.0.0 UG ppp0
That "tel" in the second line is interesting -- I suspect it's relevant,
but I don't know what to do with it.
Now, as I said, I can do anything except access the machines I most want
-- those on my own subnet. If I try to telnet for example, I get the
message "no route to host".
Now if I try rcroute restart, I get an error message:
Error while executing:
/sbin/route del -net xxx.xx.xxx.0 netmask 255.255.254.0 dev ppp0
SIOCDELRT: No such process
Shutting down routing failed
Now my route table is just as before, but with the eth0 line above no
longer present. And I can get to anything.
If I remove the ppp0 line from /etc/route.conf, the same thing happens
except that after the error I still can't get to my own machines.
Any help greatly appreciated.
