   That's about what I thought.  It's odd, though, that the FreeBSD box 
goes crazy.  A look at dmesg shows that it can't even find the MAC 
address of the ethernet card if the mac's turned on when it boots.

   I'm marking it down to a crummy ethernet card or something weird on my 
network, if nobody else has any ideas.

   10baseT, both machines go in to a hub.  They're the only machines on 
the network at the moment.
