The crossover cable has fixed a lot of things, but I'm
still not there yet. 

I just tried taking the hub out of the picture and
things are still looking good, so the hub was my
connection problem.  Dumb question: Do hubs have IP
addresses?  I need to get a hub in there that works in
order to avoid major rewiring.  Is there something
special I need to look for so it will be "compatible"
with my router?

With the hub out of the circuit, booting up shows an
error "syslog cannot write to remote file handle
on192.168.2.2:514"  (space omitted on purpose). is my server.

I'll be googling.  If you know the answer off the top
of your head, please let me know.
