    The sit* interfaces are, AFAIK, pseudo-interfaces to run IPv6-in-IPv4 tunnels.

    The sit interfaces come automagically with the 2.6 kernel. It doesn't seem very up to me; what makes you think it is?

    oh...so sit does not come with 2.4.x kernels??
    if so that explains it then....i used to use 2.4.x kernels before and just booted thru 2.6.0 and saw the interface...
