Hi les.

I'm sorry but I've reformatted the hard drive for something else at the 
moment.  I will have to buy another H/D and come back to the issue.

I thought I had been pretty clear but it looks like there is some  'wiggle 
room'  in what I said.

The k12 test server has two cards.  One is connected to a 192.168.1.x subnet.

As I said, I did a ping yahoo.com and pulled the cable from the k12 server and 
the ping stopped.  This means the k12 server is now isolated from other 

The other ethernet card goes to a 4-way switch siting on top of the k12 

A second cable comes from the 4-way switch to a pxe terminal.

It gives the message, only after the second boot from the install.

I'm redoing the network (luckily, it's small) and moving everything to static 
and will start over, probably next week when I get another H/D.

wash, rinse, do again ;-)
