Does an alarming amount of "ICMP: failed checksum from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
necessarily tip off an attempted DoS attack? Are these normal? Should I get
this message a few times, and then other times a lot?

I think some ruthless Quake players are trying to take down the server by doing
such a thing..

This is on an ethernet connection.. not ppp or anything else.
