I don't see the attachment (possibly the mailing list software
doesn't pass along attachments to other list members, which is probably
a good thing), but something I want to point out:

If you're referring to IP checksums being wrong for *every packet*,
this is probably due to checksum offloading on wherever you ran the
Ethereal/pcap from.  There's an Ethereal FAQ entry about it.

If this isn't the case, disregard my comment altogether.
