Yeah, that's right. Stuff mostly works again now, the main problem I had
was olive (the 2924) not liking the uplink unless it was in trunked mode
(which the uplink isn't at the moment), and then trying to deconfigure the
accelar gracefully. So the uplink now goes to eth1 (the e100), eth0
(e1000) goes to olive with vlans 2 and 3 being machineroom and clubroom
respectively. bertoli needs to be connected up and taught about vlans.
Magic IPs, loft vlan etc still need to be set up, but tftpd and mop work.
Appletalk requires a recompile of the kernel. meito and other things on
the cisco now have working waix again.
