Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

before I delve into this complex question, let us first look at the setup and hardware:
1 x Celeron 400 Mhz Machine (96 MB RAM). NO GUI. command-line-only
This machine is running SuSE Linux professional 9.2 (no GUI)
1 x Netgear MR 814 Router
3 x Windows 2000 / Xp clients on the same LAN
1 x Windows XP machine form the outside (external IP)
OK, the task at hand:
I wish to set up this linux machine so that its SOLE PURPOSE (repeat: 1 and only SOUL purpose) is to allow more than one incoming VPN connection. What I wish to acheive is create a VPN network so 3 people form inside the house, and a freind who lives in a different city can all play C& C G ZH. So think of this machine (the linux one) as a "VPN server" so to speak.
As I have mentioned, we do have a router in place, but port-forwarding should not be a problem.
Now, since I do not own a copy of Windows NT Server 4 (which is probably all that machine cna handle in terms of a windows server). is there a Linux Alternative to this?
Essential;ly here is what I am after: I need a FOR DUMMIES (repeat: for DUMMIES) guide from A to Z tp set up a VPN server in linux that can handle MPRE THAN ONE incoming connection.
