linux configuration question

ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig add eth0 3ffe:.../64 (remember to use EUI-64)

Or, using the fine 'ip' utility, type something like:
ip -6 addr add eth0 3ffe:.../64

If you have an advertising router on your wire, you can also just type
'ifconfig eth0 up' and it will use DAD (dynamic auto discovery) to configure
the interface and bring it up.


N.B. ip(8) can be fetched from ftp.inr.ac.ru, and needs Netlink in the kernel.
