I noticed last night while trying to configure my SuSE 9.1 laptop for
MIT, that the routing table had en entry for 169.254.0.0. It is coming
from the network scripts, ifup-route. It shouldn't hurt, but I was
wondering why this was done, or is it something that someone at SuSE set
up. I haven't seen any documentation on this either.
