Quite straightforward, but still asking: I have to do this on all my interfaces, right?
Oh, and if I do packetfiltering, I still have to do that on the physical interface, right?
Do I have to 'addm' the vlan interfaces to bridge0, or the physical interfaces?

OK, thanks. Will this method work with every kind of NIC (i. e. no hardware support is needed)?
Thanks a lot. I owe you a plethora of drinks now. :-)
