GNS3 config

If you setup a sub-Interface (e.g. Fastethernet 0/0.900 with an ip address of 10.100.8.1 /30) and connect it via ethernet to another router with an interface (Fastethernet 0/0 ip address 10.100.8.2 /30) would you expect to be able to ping it?  That is from a directly connected interface ping the subinterface on the other router?  I can not ping directly connected interfaces in GNS3 when they have subinterface configurations.  If I remove the sub-interface configuration and put it on the main interface (e.g. Fasterthernet 0/0 above) it works just fine?  Am I on crack?

Yea, I am on crack!  This cant work, if you have subinterfaces, you had to encapsulate with dot1q and this means you need a device that understands vlan tags! So you cant just connect the two router interfaces with your ethernet cable.  Sorry to waste everyones time, but there is no delete button!
