as long as the kernel supports masking of ARP requests in some manner,
it doesn't matter what you use.  e.g., Solaris' standard kernel works
just fine alongside a Linux kernel.  it's just standard TCP/IP, after
all.

(I wouldn't use either 7.3 or 9, time to move on to Fedora or RHEL,
IMHO.  but http://www.fedoralegacy.org/ makes it possible to stay with
RHL9 for some time.)
