A Octane w/ FastE and an SS20 w/ SunFDDI.  Connecting through a U1 with
HME and SunFDDI (although it occured to me today that I should double
check that the Octane isn't trying to talk to the U1s le port instead of
hme since the U1 has both hme and le connected to the local network). 

Seeing as I have no HME for the SS20, I can't exactly try putting it on
the same physical subnet.  I think I can put it on the same logical subnet.
