It can?! I'm not using it myself, so I can't tell you anything from
personal experience, but a bridge shouldn't be able to distinguish
level 3/4 protocols, since it's on level 2 itself. I mean a bridge
should not be able to tell a TCP/IP from an IPX/SPX or a NetBEUI or
whatever packet. If you want to enable IPX only, use ethernet frame
802.3, which can only be used by IPX/SPX. I'm not sure how you set the
frame type in Linux, though, I'm afraid, I've often wondered about
that myself, but maybe I should just look at the Ethernet HOWTO.
