Linux errmsg: SIOCADDRT: Invalid arguments

1. route add ==> SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument

Hi all,

I tried using some lines from the NET-3-HOWTO to configure
a test ethernet between a solaris 2.5.1 machine and a
Linux-2.0.29 box and got the following error message:

    # ifconfig eth0 netmask up
    # route add -net netmask eth0
    # route add default gw eth0

    SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument

Can anybody tell me what that should mean ?
