the P4 is the onyl machine I have lying around, other than a Dell
poweredge 6450 server.

The issue is that we have a PIX501 which as a 32 IP (internal) limit,
so anything else gets dropped, however we have some 60 odd machines,
so i wanted to perform NAT to get this working correctly.

The Pix sits between us and the DSL modem, so hence I'm stuck, Oh and
the Im not allowed to remove the PIX which complicates matters.
