Which, by the way, creates an interesting problem when using a tool
such as EtherPeek to record Ethernet packets.

If EtherPeek is running on a CPU with a 10 MHz Ethernet connection,
it will see all packets going between 10 MHz connections, but will
*not* see any of the packets going from one 100 MHz to another 100 MHz
connection because in effect these have been switched to a separate 
100 MHz "segment".  Very baffling until one figures out what is
going on.
