These are all good ideas, however many sniffers are not Unix systems that
can be logged into and examined.  I have worked with DOS based sniffers
(Network General Sniffer, Excelan, HP, etc) that are far superior to suns 
(as sniffers/protocol analayzers) and I doubt that they are easily detectable 
even with their transmit lead intact.

I don't think the machine you run sniffer software on could make it better
or worse, they all get the same packets;)
