No sweat - will do this later today, with just the FreeBSD server and one of
the XP workstations running.  I'll get it to join the domain, then reboot

upload to a web server and email the link to this list.

packets?  I could just run ethereal and dump the log file, but off memory
this isn't exactly the easiest thing on the eyes.)
