Wahey, I got it! I was being too clever, I had my LAN on a different network
so Ronan's suggested NAT obviously wouldn't work for me. I also made the
silly mistake of using the Red Hat router for DNS instead of the DSL router.
I'll go through Ronan and Peter's firewall stuff in more detail tomorrow.
One other thing, how do I allow outgoing FTP requests from my LAN again? Oh,
and when I was cleaning up the nastiness that Red Hat installs for kicks I
tried to uninstall rpm404, which I assumed was a backwards compatibility
thing. Unfortunately, RPM is hanging on me now. Any tips for reinstalling
