Or an idiot is in charge :( The Fedora box has 2 nics, and yes ladies
and gentlemen I plugged the wire into the wrong nic. What was throwing
me off (even more than my own cleverness) was that I could see the ARP
messages via Ethereal, but couldn't figure out why they weren't pinging.
However this does lead me to the question, how does the Fedora box know
that it needs to determine the windows MAC address (i.e. "the Who has
10.0.0.151? Tell 10.0.0.100" stuff) if the ICMP traffic wasn't arriving
