There were a handful of helpful folks who asked about what I was trying to
do before they showered me with advice.  (Advice mainly about how OSPF is

experiences actually installing IS-IS - I am very thankful.

Some useful discussion come out of the thread though.  I hope those who
didn't participate came away with some insight.
