That will probably work. It probably doesn't help that the server is on my
100Mbit full duplex upstairs backbone, while my 10Mbit Suns are mostly at the
end of a 10Mbit line that goes down to the basement. :-)

Too many systems on the same floor means too much heat even with central

I have an IPX that I would like to upgrade to 2.0, but I need to find out
