RE: RARP server support on Linux 2.4

Thanks for the reply - I'm still somewhat confused.

Is all I have to do is add hardware to IP address
mappings in /etc/ethers and the rarpd daemon
will pick them up and add them to the kernel?

Is there any way to monitor what the kernel has
in it's rarp cache, similiar to running the rarp command
on the old 2.2.x kernels?

Thanks in advance,
