Actually, I think we should have Ethernet support.  Auto detecting
Ethernet cards seems to be possible (NT does it).

Perhaps we could even do some kind of "automatic" TCP/IP setup on an
ethernet network, as NT can do.  We could extrapolate this into having
support for "standard" corporate installations - you just stick in the
disk and it figures out the ethernet card, gets an IP address, reads
what it's supposed to install from a server somewhere, and does it.

Also, regarding office suites.....

Perhaps we should set up a separate mailing list for discussion of a
Linux office suite?  Would the folks at txcc want to do this?
