as to Michael Brown's posting...
SHould I expect a standard 100Mbps switch (eg Netgear) to drop 
large MTU packets?

I was going to try it locally at first, and then between two boxes 
connected by a cross-over cable, to at least see if it was practical.

After that I was going to deal with the switch problem.
