Minimalism - My project
Hello all. I'm a n00b to linux.
I have a long history of using computers going back to when I was 3 years old. I grew up with DOS command lines, so I enjoy using Linux. I need some help however.
I have used Mandrake 9.0 for a few months now... and I would like to take the next step in my linux career.
I would like to set up my box in a minimalistic fashion, but I need some help
Here is how I would like to run my box with 4 scripts
$ ./ethernet0.sh <--- Start up primary internet ethernet card
$ ./ethernet1.sh <--- Start up internal network ethernet card
$ ./firewall.sh <--- Start up a firewall over the eth0... eth1 should not be firewalled
$ ./inetsharing.sh <--- Start up internet sharing so internal network can use the web
Could someone help me start from absolute scratch (aka format b4 installing this linux kernal). The only processes I want running are the ones that are absolutely necessary.
