At a previous employer handing out addresses ending in .0 or .255 out of
a netblock in "traditional class C space" to dialup customers often
caused problems for them. I don't know whether that was due to the
equipment used (Cisco AS5300/AS5800) or to the clients (Windows 98 and
similar ilk); I suspect the latter, though, although the former had
their own set of problems...
