[linux-help] Moving to Kubuntu

I am slowly moving to Kubuntu, the KDE version of Ubuntu, which is based on
Debian. Kubuntu has the slickest install I have ever encountered; asked
just the right questions in a way I could understand them. Might be tough
for a real newbie, but I thought it was great.
After I got the internet working, I found that on reboot I had to always do
"route add default gw 192.168.128.1 eth0"
bit to get through the firewall. The routing table always always showed
the Kubuntu box itself as the gateway. In Redhat, doing the route add
thing once made it permanent. Finally discovered a file
/etc/network/interfaces which called out the Kubuntu box as its own
gateway -- changed this and it works OK on bootup.
Is this a Debian thing and if so what is the rational?
