Guidance sought on collaboration techniques

Gary,

I only have one XO.  I do all my development work on a couple of Fedora 
10 boxes running Sugar.  These two boxes are connected to the same 
router using Ethernet cables.  It has been my experience that the only 
way they can collaborate is through the jabber server, and that makes me 
think that the mesh networking is a function of the wireless networking 
built into the XO and that two computers wired to the same router can't 
collaborate that way.  I'd be interested to know if I'm right.

Thanks,

James Simmons
