Changing 'metric' in routing table.

Changing 'metric' in routing table.

Hi, I'm trying to network a Win95 box to a Linux box, and not having
much luck getting them to talk to each other. I've just noticed that in
the Linux routing table 'metric' is set to 0 while in the Win95 routing
table it's set to 1. Could this be my problem? If so, how do I fix it?
Thanks. Here are the tables:
