On my network that creates lots of collision messages of the type:
IPX: Network number collision 2
        eth0 802.3 and eth0 802.2
I found a way to work around it by adding these two lines to the end
of the start section of /etc/init.d/ipx:
                ipx_configure --auto_interface=off
                ipx_interface del eth0 802.2
Perhaps something needs to be done about it in a more structured way.
