You know that you need *two* of these Fibre Optic LB200s? If you have two
and you have a conveniently placed piece of fibre - fiber will work too :-) -
then off you go. You should have no problems.
IIRC the LB200 can do both Spanning Tree and the older-style DEC LB100
bridgeing topology stuff. If you have a sufficiently late ucode (V1.6 or
later?) it is also SNMP manageable. Otherwise you might need RBMS or elms
