Alan, I've got a box down at my ISP. I really really want to use CBQ on my
incoming traffic (because I share a 64k ISDN with my Girlfriend and if she
touches a w3 site my SSH is unbearable).

Would it work if I got another IP address at the ISP and made the linux
box there answer that address (proxy arp I guess) and set a static route
to send those packets to my static dialup address (or a IPIP tunnel)..

Could I perform CBQ on the incoming connection?

another question..

What is Linux's current briding performance like? If I wanted to assemble
a poorman's switch what cards should I use? Should I use tulips and route
insted of switch (and use fast routing). Will bridiging to card-card on
the right cards?
