I forgot to finish the thought.  It's going to look like:

   tcpdump -i eth0 icmp

BTW, a question to the list.  The man page claims the expression to listen
to icmp pings should be:

   tcpdump ip proto icmp

But that gave a parse error.  By trial and error, I found this works:

   tcpdump icmp

Am I reading the man page wrongly or is the man page wrong?
