Abhinay,

A lot of reading and show commands on the IOS has to be done from your side for this.

Its better to

1. Read the concepts

2. Try out on the IOS

3. Ask questions

RIB is the Routing information base, another jargon for Routing table.

CEF is an efficient way of routing packets across a router and is very scalable and can be called switching at Layer 3

Please refer to http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6146827.html for an intro.

The RIB is the routing table. Dynamic routing protocols will insert routes into the RIB themselves. If you wanted to insert a specific entry into the RIB then configure a static route eg.

ip route 192.168.5.0 255.255.255.0
