Nope, you're correct.  It was something new to me to, but after some
well-received "guidance", I've got things straightened out.... <grin>

About all I've found on EQL was in the NET3-Howto.  I haven't tried any of
this yet (soon, though), but from the docs it looks as if all you need is
to run "ifconfig eql .... up/down" to establish the driver/interface.  (Of
course, you need kernel support for EQL as well.)  Once that's done, there
are additional steps required to establish connections to the remote
system, but I can't remember those steps and I don't have access to the
Howto right now.

Also, I'm sure there are others _much_ more knowledgeable about EQL than I
am - I'm a true newbie in this area.

Thanks for the help,
