This begs the question, what the hell is it good for? Maybe it would be
better to jerk the thing out by the roots like a Mandrake, kicking and
screaming, and be done with it. I dinked with all of my NFS mounts in my
localnet until I broke everything, on all of my machines, REAL GOOD(tm)!
Then I found the wonky eth0 address on my server. I appreciate being on
the cutting edge, I just abhor getting an ass-beating to something
mission critical like everyday networking. 

My first fear was that I was root-kitted via my stinking 56k modem, that
only runs reliably at 28.8, and that someone had way too much time on
their hands! <grimaces> Ric
