  I've been asked by my boss, to comment on a document that deals with
Ethernet Vs IBM Token Ring. It is EXTREMLY biased in favour of IBM Token
Ring.

I recall just recently a message about Token Ring Bridges source routing
and what the IEEE said about it. If someone has that message saved and
could sent it to me, I would be very appreciative.

If anyone has figures on maximum through-put of 10 Mbps Ethernet, I could
make good use of them.

Also if anyone has information on "token" loss and its impact on a Token
Ring, I could include it in my comments. (The above document never mentions
the posibility).
