the netmask stays the same, no matter what the network is. So if it's a
network of 8 hosts, it will be 256 - 8 = 248 = /29 as kirk mentioned.
the confusing one is when it's something like 172.16.0.0/12, which covers
more than one number in the second position (I'm making no sense :)). It
goes from 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255 (thanks Colm).
