Pls. help remove the static route


I am on Linux Redhat 5.3. I added this static route but now I can't seem to take it out. Can you help?

netstat -rn
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface UGH       0 0          0 eth0

I get this error message when I try to remove it.

#route del host gw
host: No address associated with name

# route del
SIOCDELRT: No such device

The format to delete a static route is:

route del <ip address> netmask <subnet mask> gw <gateway> <interface>
