In my case... lack of understand/education.  I have been reading as much
as I can about multicasting, but I have yet to find a simple FAQ/HOW-TO
guide on enabling my internal network for multicast.  I have a mixture of
Nortel and Cisco routers and switches.  All the manuals TALK about
multicast, but I haven't found a simple setup guide.

I figure, there is no point in multicast enabling my edge/internet router
if the rest of my network isn't multicast aware...

Any thoughts?  I just joined the multicast mailing list mentioned here
earlier to hopefully learn more about the subject...
