Well, the first 'A' is in regards to the stealth interface whilst the others
are in regards to a r/o cable.

You can also have a look at the two docs I've archived on my lil' snort page.
One is already in the FAQ (Sam Ng's cable), while the other is just a useful
email I snagged from the honepots list.

IIRC, on most systems it's as simple as "ifconfig <int> up".  Some might
require an ip, if so use as the IP.  As for yours...  Don't know.  I
don't have access to a RH box to confirm the exact commands.

Hope that helps!
