since dhcp sets 192.168.1.254 as the 'router' address, I presume that
all internal LAN will use the Linksys DSL router and thus both eth0 and
eth1 will have a path to the Linksys DSL router ensuring duplicity.

You probably will want to identify...

GATEWAYDEV=eth0

in /etc/sysconfig/network because it's a crapshoot otherwise
