kernel not processing ICMP Redirects

My linux box (actually several of them) which are running 2.0.22 &
2.0.23 (redhat 3.0.3) are not processing ICMP redirects from my cisco
2501. I get the message in the kernel log (syslog) "ICMP redirect
from" but the routing table is not updated properly. Is
the kernel supposed to do this (I thought it did back in 1.2.13 days).
If the kernel is not supposed to be doing this how do I go about
updating the route table?

email Answers please.
