Section 4.1.22. /etc/sysconfig/network contains obsolete info

Description of problem:
Documentation says the /etc/sysconfig/network file contains the
GATEWAY and GATEWAYDEV directives. Not on my system. Seems GATEWAY
has been moved to the individual ifcfg-eth<X> files, thus obsoleting
the GATEWAYDEV directive ?
Section "8.2.1. Ethernet Interfaces" documenting the ifcfg-eth<X>
files fails to mention the GATEWAY directive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. View the Reference Guide
2. View 4.1.22
3. View 8.2.1
Talking with initscripts developer owner, as the
/usr/share/doc/initscrips-ver/sysconfig.txt file is also incorrect.
Yeah, it's a little out of date. Both approaches should actually work.
Will add GATEWAY to 8.2.1 and subtract GATEWAY and GATEWAYDEV from
4.1.22 per bug reporter for RHEL4-rg documentation. Closing bug as
NEXTRELEASE, as the information isn't incorrect, just needs
clarification for RHEL4.
