Something to do with the network address. But now that I think about
it, I may be confusing it with the rules for creating a custom subnet.

I'll have to look it up, but it involves using a subnet mask like
255.255.224.0 instead of the usual 255.255.255.0. This way you can have
a subnet with space for only a few machines, instead of the 254 spots
you get with using 192.168.1.x with 255.255.255.0 as the subnet mask.
Tune in tomorrow when I can explain it further... :)
(Ya know, it's about time for a refresher for me, since Level 2 of my
CCNA classes start in 2 weeks...)
