I intend on using the bridge between my shop and my house! My shop has a
cluster of seven 3100's (NetBSD), four 3600's (NetBSD), two 2000's (NetBSD)
and one 11/785 (Ultrix). I am going to bridge that noisy network over to
my office which is in my house (120 feet away) where I am using a Sparc 2
(Slowlaris) and a Sun 3/80 running NetBSD 1.3.
