Hello S.L.U.G,

Thanks for the pointers for the Mandrake docs.  I have another
interesting problem that's kind of Linux related.

One of my clients has a wireless link between two of their buildings.
They have no idea what speed it runs at, and they're no longer in
touch with the company that put it in. What (linux based) software is
there for testing throughput over ethernet?  I can isolate both ends
of the link for a short while, with a linux box directly connected to
each end.
