LOL ;) I won't condone going against their rules, but that is what NAT
is for...

How about:

# ifconfig rl0 alias 192.168.0.1/24

I can't remember if /24 will work, if it doesn't:

# ifconfig rl0 alias 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0

> On the second PC:
> #ifconfig fxp0 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.1

and:

# ifconfig fxp0 192.168.0.2/24

...should get you at minimum to see each other.

ie: from 2nd pc:

# ping 192.168.0.1

...now about that 2 pc's on the Internet thing. I think *almost* all
ISP's who offer highspeed say that.
