	I've got an old RH 6.x box using cbq to do the shaping ;) There are
commercial packages, but since I'm a little fish in a big sea, I opted
to roll my own... It seems to work rather well, though it's time to
replace that box, it's been running 4 years now... I like some of the
QOS I can do with the newer kernels..
