	Precisely my interface cards.  Yes, you can route
ethernet, and maybe even a T1 or can't do serious T1 or DS3
aggregation or anything larger than an OC-3 or so with that PC.

	It's fine for people in colo or with a couple of LANs to route
about but it isn't a practical solution for those of us with real 
networks to run.  So, will you and everyone else who brings this up,
please stop.  If it were as practical as you claim, a lot more people
would be doing it.

	I think you'll need to be more specific than GSR when making
