I now have dhcpcd running.  I can't use tcpdump, because I don't have 
it, nor any way to get it at the moment.  If I had netatalk, I could 
download it to my Mac laptop and transfer it, but I don't have 
netatalk, either.

I do have sniffit, though, and when I ping the ISP''s gateway, I get 
nothing.  However, I do get input that seems intended for another 
machine on the cable ( ...oh, here's another:

Here is the result of route:

Destination     Gateway            Genmask            Flags Metric

localnet            *                 U

That netmask value of looks odd to me.

The relevant portions of dmesg are:

rtl8139.c:v1.07 5/6/99 DOnald Becker 
eth0: RealTek RTL8139 Fast Ethernet at 0xb800, IRQ 12, 00:50:ba:86:2b:7a
eth1: RealTek RTL8139 Fast Ethernet at 0xb400, IRQ 10, 00:50:ba:86:34:ff

It's late, and I don't have time to review xconfig.
