Mind you, at home I have a peer-2-peer network with a D-Link router
connected to an ADSL modem. The D-link router is the DHCP server on my
network and hands out private IP addresses. Its own address can be
seen above.
The DNS server is the router, which goes out to my ISP.

Of course there are no PDC or Active Directory servers around, I do
have a Win2000 server which handles my VPN gateway (through the D-Link
router) and also serves as my local CVS server for CVSMailer and other
private stuff I do. It is also not a domain PC, though.

I know that when I received Polaris and had to walk through the XP
installation I entered the domain suffix "just for fun", it was an
invented one of course.
