	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 instead of the usual 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 as the subnet mask.

	Tune in tomorrow when I can explain it further... :)
