Well . . . it's finally done but, it required so many non-ascii graphics
that it turned into a 25 page PDF.  Would that be appropriate to post to
this list? I don't know if it allows attachments?

Would it be considered rude to cross post it to the new LARTC list?

Also, if it is of any help, I have a far less structured document - 12
pages of my notes on building a test WAN environment with IFB, HFSC, and
netem.  If that is of any interest, I can post that, too. I do not want
to be presumptuous and they are far from perfect but I also know how
much I struggled to find documentation.  Thanks - John
