yes, that i know. they're
[ethernet header with arp type code]
[arp link type, ethernet=0x0001]
[arp upper layer, ip=0x0800]
[link address length, ethernet=0x06]
[upper layer address length, ip=0x04]
[arp type query=0x0001, reply=0x0002]
and then a pair of ethernet and ip address combinations. for
requests, the second ethernet address is usually all ones or all
