Normal traceroute doesn't use src routing, btw. From my docs, you need
to use the LSRR patches to get source routing:
Matt Mathis' patches to Van Jacobson's traceroute.
These patches enable LSRR (source level routing).
BTW, someone else asked about docs for traceroute. Good documentation
comes with the software, both in the manpage and README. The software
is available at most major sites, I believe.
