I've heard claims that some Novell specific hardware won't do anything
but IPX.  I've never encountered this myself. (anyone know if it's
true??  FUD??) AFAIK, a hub should be doing all its work at the hardware
level anyway.

: However, if it's a router, then it will have to support IP as well as IPX.
