I assume you want to use the rh-box as file/print/whatever-server and
internet-gateway. For all of that, you need just one ip-address.
ifconfig eth0 down
should switch off your ethernet card (maybe you
also need ifconfig eth0:1 down
, i've never used that eth0:1 stuff).
ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
will bring it up
Once ping 192.168.0.1
works on those w*-clients, your have a
fileserver (provided that samba
is properly installed).
To give 'em the net, you need Masquerading
. If you're lucky,
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
is all it takes (but more
likely you'll have to read Linux IP Masquerade HOWTO
Linux Networking HOWTO
Then tell w* to use 192.168.0.1 as gateway (or default-route, dunno how
they call it). If you have a large number of clients, you might like to set
up a dhcp-server on your rh-box (see DHCP mini-HOWTO
That should tell the clients which gateway to use, so you don't have to
run around to configure every rotten windoze-box.
Hope that helps.
