Mozilla Adds Support for Internet Protocol Version 6 on Windows

For people on Win2k/XP/2003 who don't have IPv6 installed, open a command prompt and run ipv6 install. You will also need to install the loopback adapter if you don't have a connected network interface." Microsoft's website has a section about Internet Protocol Version 6 with information and downloads.

What's "a connected network interface"? What's a loopback adapter?

I went and installed ipv6 on my XP Gold machine (which Mirosoft tells me is a developers release of ivp6). Now I'd like to try it. Can someone show me how I to use it? Aren't there odd-looking addresses now like http://2349sfdn348g9g98sg0984tn11/ or something?

Excuse my ignorance.
