Try traceroute www.yahoo.com and see what happens.  UNIX/GNU traceroute
uses one of the high UDP ports.  If that works, then try telnetting
(from a terminal) to www.yahoo.com on TCP 80.  I suspest that this
second step won't work.  Any other boxes (UNIX, GNU/Linux, Mac,
whatever) that can Web surf on the same IP subnet that the K12LTSP
server's sitting on?

Do you GNU!?
