Hi, I am have just got broadband installed and have it working on my Linux box. Now I wanrt to set up a network with the other computers in my house - 2 pc's and a mac.
I have a cable modem connected via ethernet card. My plan is to use a second ethernet card in my pc to connect it to a hub, and then connect the other pcs to this hub.
Since most stuff in docs that i have found is quite specific and has a lot of jargon, I'm struggling to find sccesible info on how to configure this network. If you have any advice or know of a suitable tutorial please let me know.
If you have a spare pc there are a few ready to run firewall/router distributions to test. Some of them doesn't even need a harddrive but can run from a floppy. One example is FreeSCO which is a fully functional firewall, router, dial-up, dial-in server with a simple web interface.
From those distributions you will not learn that much about networking and linux. If you plan to learn a bit about networking and linux then there are some good reading on http://www.tldp.org/
Take a special look at the guides.
