   I am currenting running
 FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE #7: Sun Aug 31 20:32:55 BST 2003     davidr at  i386

I added some aliases to my main ethernet card today and added the routes like i normally do. When i looked at the routing tables I saw this:

core-2# netstat -rn
Routing tables

is that normal?  I am able to delete the routes from the table ? I had to boot kernel.old coz i couldnt get my 4.9-prerelease to connect to the net.
any ideas ? I am going to cvsup in a build and make world again to see if that fixes anything
