The progress *thus far* :
I've managed to get all the computers on the network to take IP's automatically using dhcpd and I am able to ping everything just fine, only problem is I still can't seem to get the internet on any other of my PC's I'm assuming this is a problem with my IP forwarding configuration. I didn't quite understand what to do with the information from the last post so I found some resources at http://www.linuxforum.com/linux_tutorials/5/1.php
and it looked pretty good untill I actually tried the other computers, then I tried firestarter as suggested by the first freindly face who responded (thank you btw) and that didn't really help either, could there be something else I'm over looking or could I have "Over Configured"? Can someone link me to some other IP forwarding related posts that would help (that I may have missed) or possible some other websites that may help?
