Yeah, I think it's the card - it's temperamental (I now know) because
suddenly it won't even light up on my hub. I will replace it. It's a
miracle that I got my install to work at all!

Thanks to everyone for helping me out, I've learned a lot (I didn't know
about arp before now.)

Maybe it would be good to do a 'Beginner's Networking' thing for the Doc
Project, with practical examples etc.?

Best wishes,
