You do, if you have one around to mess up with. But if you don't (like I
don't), you use a 386sx/4meg (with fp emulation ;) that runs the mrt
routing daemon and gets 250+ routes from the 6bone, with 2.1.41. It used
to run sendmail and named too, but then I could not log on at the console
any more ;) It works fine as an IPv6 router.
