	I'm in! I need to update my multi OS test box since all its versions
will be 2 years out of date but its still sitting on the rack behind me :-).
	I don't have any IP V6 yet but it sounds like other folks do and my
HPC folks have both Opterons for 64 bit and a PowerPC Xserve that they think 
they have fought SUSE Linux on to for a development box for their AIX cluster
but I know they really want me to use as an argus sensor (after I talk Lixin
into putting the ring buffer code on it :-)). So as usual that covers off 
Free/Net/OpenBSD and MAC OS 10.
