    from what I can see so long as david is the only way to internet any
    thing can be hung off s1 and s2. All of your machines can have the same
    format ip ( i assuume sub net of with no
    problems when I was running two 5 port hubs my server machinse used hub
    one and the machines down the back used the other hub no problems it is
    just a swich is more intellegent tha a hub i ma using a ip address in a
    planed way my self to 009 Servers usaly have only one but have had up to
    three on test to 019 mahcines that can be in the Lounge kiction of
    the house to 200 any machine on DHCP ( actualy that is the others
    allthe others two machines) to 254 things like print servers and the like ( have none)

    I have left plenty of big hols in my Ip plan so I can add things as
    required like wirless link to folks (in my dreams)
