Ahh! I am doing some testing of multicast video
streaming. It streams a single 8Mbps stream fine but
if I add another to it the throughput just falls away
for both streams.

Am I asking too much to stream approx 16Mbps? I kinda
thought that 100Mbps NICs and a PIII would handle it.
I don't suppose there are any settings I can tweak?
