Net-pf-3 refers to the AX.25 network protocol, net-pf-4 to IPX and
net-pf-5 to Appletalk. I had the same problem and since I wasn't using
any of the protocols was instructed to put the following in
/etc/conf.modules to stop the messages:
alias net-pf-3 off #AX.25
alias net-pf-4 off #IPX
alias net-pf-5 off #Appletalk
There is a discussion of this in the May 1996 archive of the user group if
you want more info. ----Richard
