    In this case it's going to negotiate with the exact same device
    in the other box when connected with a X-over cable, and with
    a Netgear switch on my desk when not. In both cases, I have
    complete control of the "network".

    FYI I just upgraded to Linux-2.6.11 I'm going to repeat my
    experiment(s) later today after I put the same kernel on
    my other machine.
