You might have installed "Dock TCP/IP," which might remove the
Appletalk option from your Dock menu (I can't confirm this, it's just
a hunch). Try freezing that package or removing it and your Appletalk
might return.

There's also another package that does this, right? By Simon Bell?
Internet Dock or something?
