      Steve told you how to do what you're asking, but I wonder why you'd 
want to.  Why not go the other way.

      I'm subscribed to two so far and I have the address blocks 
2001:470:1f05:9e::/64 and 2001:5c0:9841::/48 assigned to me. 
ipv6.he.net and free6.net respectively.  I'm having a 
ball!  I just wish more VOIP applications supported IPV6.
