Can anyone recommend a good source of practice scenarios for a smallish lab (I've got 4 3 2501's (Ethernet), 2 2502's (Token Ring), a 2522, a 2521, and a 2513.

I am really intimidated by PIM Sparse Mode and all the different rendezvous points and mapping agents and bootstrap routers - I'd really like to get some hands-on experience with it before my BSCI exam on 11/20. Would appreciate referrals to any websites or books that have some practical scenarios I could set up in my study lab.

iTunes and Windows Media Player both use multicasts; put up a player on one side and a server (shared folder) on the other and you'll get (near) instant feedback when the configuration is correct.

Good Luck
