Hi Antontio,
i am glad that i found somebody else intrested in the same topic, two
minds are better than one!

>Some days ago I've spoken with Renzo Davoli (you know him!) about the

with  >Netkit.
Yes i know him, he's one of my teacher and if this thing about Netkit
works out i'll be doing my thesis with him.

>I've expercienced just some little bit situations that you can see at

>the vsrtart script !).
I am having a look at that, i am very busy these days cause i have some
assigments due next week, but tonight i think i'll find some time to check
them out.

Not sure of what is exacly your problem, but you talk about mac-addresses,
i have been in trouble with those suckers, cause qemu starts the vm with
the same mac-addr, but there is a command line option to change the
default one.
I fixed all my troubles with that.
It seems to me that all this net-kit thing spins around UML, i have been
using it last year in my OS unit, but right now i stick with qemu that
seems to be quite faster. What do you think?

I am posting in english for two reasons, one is that this list is supposed
to in english language and the second one is that at the moment i am
living in Perth, WA and i am kind of used to it.

But, non c'e' nessuna ragione di parlarsi in una lingua straniera fra
conterranei, se vediamo che la cosa si allarga a qualche anglofono bene,
senno' possiamo tornare alla vecchia lingua italica :)
