	I might agree if the discussion didn't warnder into good and bad
	switches, which is something that many of us are conconcerned
	with.  Otherwise, i apologise.

	I'll check it out when I'm using evo.  My bg was in ckt design,
	but that was a Long time back.  For those of us who use FreeBSD
	at work, the expense of a switch shouldn't be an issue.  For me, 
	I _will_ just buy a second LG switch.  Still, be interesting to
	see if one of my old computers with FBSD 8.X could run the unit.
	Appreciate the tip, Chad.
