i'll look into it... we use it at work, but i wasn't the one who set it up,
so i haven't had any experience with it...  is it any easier to setup than
it was before the name change?  (iirc, it used to be net saint or something
like that)...  i piddled around w/ it a while back on my fbsd box but never
really got anywhere on it (granted, i spent probably less than 15 min on it

thanks for all the help, everyone!

p.s. i picked up a new splitter and RG-6 cable just in case...  that way,
they have absolutely nothing on me if it still has problems :)
