Thanks Dave!

Hmmm...  Tridge suggested that TotalNet was a separate implementation, but
I had heard the that it was AT&T/MS based code.

What I'm *really* wondering is where they got the NetWare code.  Three
possibilities:  1) they have a deal with Novell, 2) they based it on
Microsoft's NetWare code, or 3) they've done their own.  I've heard that
there are some big holes in Microsoft's implementation.
