No idea about the catalyst.

If you have only two hosts the easiest way to connect them is through a 
PVC. If they are running freebsd you want to look at the atmconfig man 

LANE configuration is quite good described in the Fore docu. But you won't 
be able to use FreeBSD with LANE (I have the code but it would be 
necessary to bring this up to -current).
