Linux token ring support bringing down corporate nets?

Author: JT Smith

Slashdot: "I've been running Debian GNU/Linux on my company supplied laptop for 3 months now. I got permission from my
manager to run it on the network, but I did not go through the somewhat rigorous process of getting the software certified. I
have legitimate business reasons for using it on the corporate network (which is why my manager approved it). I even
managed to get Lotus Notes to run under wine so I never had to boot into Winders at all (unless someone sent me a PPT
doc). I was pretty happy...until I brought the entire network down." Anyone else running Linux on a Token Ring network who
would care to talk about their own experiences?"
