	What they said.  

	However - this is the NANOG list, not the EOF.  If you
	are going to play in the EU space, you should ask there.
	Also - if you are just playing w/ nuts/bolts - a valuable 
	resource is the NSRC site.  They do excellent work in 
	helping the technology challanged understand and deploy
	communications systems.

	you might also want to talk to the DENIC folks and likely RIPE NCC.

	Good Luck, you wet-behind-the-ears whippersnapper.
