Hey! I like that idea! I've got a SE/30 with a SCSI-Ethernet adapter, I'd
not thought of turning it into a Sniffer, and I've been wanting to build
one for when I want to see what's going on with my network. I'd never even
thought of using a Mac for that, I'd been planning on getting an older PC
laptop for that. Actually if I were to use a Mac, I'd probably go with my
PowerBook 540c that I don't use much any more.

GACK!!!! $995.00 Suggested Retail price?!?!? I don't suppose you know of
any *affordable* sniffer's for the Mac? It looks like a beauty, and even
does DECnet (so it does everything I'd need from the looks of it), but
that's way to much for hobbyist use.
