   I love that line so i had to repeat it.

   I believe that the answer to your question is that most systems are
802.2. I have a client who is running Novell v3.11, which is an
"intermediate" version, and they need 802.3. But because i think that the
802.3 is "odd", that implies that 802.2 is "normal". 

   I hope this helps. Good luck.
