Used slink for complete reinstall late summer so I assume (maybe
incorrectly) that I should have ok ifconfig. Here is example output:
inet addr:192.168.0.80 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:17 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:16 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
after rebooting. I noticed (before reboot) that I had accumulated a number
(160+) frame errors for RX - but haven't been able to track down the cause
in a repeatable manner yet.

Over my head here - how do I monitor this?
