If your system is old enough to have the HEA in it, OK, then it can do all
the virtualization for you. If it's a four port adapter assigned to one
partition then you'll need to bridge it to the virtual partitions in order
for that partition to see the network.

Great point! My thoughts were simple, as they tend to be. I don't have a
4-port adapter I can dedicate to the guest LPAR; the TCP/IP traffic will be
low; I don't need to pester the infrastructure people for an IP address, a
rule in the external routing configuration, a slot in the patch bay...
Haha, I thought I was taking the easy road!
