CT networked via Ethernet ???

On that subject, any experiences out there with respect to using 10-Base-2
(coax) vs. 10-Base-T (twisted pair) networks in an RF environment?? I plan
on networking a couple of PC's at home, one of them being a laptop with a
10-Base-T card. Anyone use 10-Base-T successfully in a high-RF location? I
second the motion for a network-ready CT version!
