    Recently I've bought Cisco WS-C1924-EN and I wonder if there is
    possibilty to form a trunk link to a Linux or FreeBSD box with ISL
    encapsulation. Unfortunately I don't have Cisco router which solves this
    problem. I've found many links pointing to ISL patch for linux kernel,
    but all these links are dead. There is also a path for FreeBSD 4.5
    however this release is withdraw from service. Could anyone can help me?
    I need it to provide routing between 11 VLAN's so put eleven NIC's in a
    box is not a option for me :)
