        I made a  lot of progress since this last email.  
        What I'm doing is swapping my old DNS server (emachines)
        for a heftier (HP Kayak).  I did not have /usr/lcal/etc/dhcpd.conf
        on the new HP server configured correctly.  I edited, KVM'ing
        between the old Emachines, and things got better: ping, for
        example.  But ssh still took a *long* time.

        My hardware guy has swapped my DSL ethernet card about 
        four times.  Right now, things are back to the way they 
        were and everything works.  *This time* I've scp'd  the
        dhcp.conf file over to this server, tao.  In about an hour
        we're going to swap things back.  

        (Of course, without DNS, thought.org vnishes.  I expect to 
        hear lots of angry email about couldn't-get-thru, but too
        bad.  My hardware pal is going home fairly soon, and I can't
        do this solo....  Sooooo..) 

        thanks fo your help.


        PS: My DNS stuff seemed ok.
