Paul, you hit the nail on the head. Thanks for the tip!

Perhaps I can throw out ONE MORE networking question...

I keep seeing this in the output of /sbin/ifconfig:

virbr0    link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 5A:4C:8D:5F:54:EA  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::584c:8dff:fe5f:54ea/64 Scope:Link
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:28 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:4977 (4.8 KiB)

but I have never configured anything named "virbr0" or even close to it.
My LAN is not 192.168.122. I don't know where this comes from. Or what
is the proper way to get rid of it.

I've never encountered anything like it on any other Linux box (of which
there have been many under my care) so I'm a little nervous about just
whacking it.

Thanks, once again!
