Tricky for me at least because I have little understanding of networking past how to set up samba and have it actually work(I actually stole and edited a smb.conf from a mandrake machine and edited it so I don't completely understand that either)
I am, quite unfortunantly, using AOL because that is what my mother likes and I don't feel like shelling out money for another line and a different service unless broadband was available
By the way, you can not edit a single property for the aol connection.
anyways this is my current setup:
|Internet|----|windows XP /w aol&proxy server running|---------|hub| ----|3 linux boxes connected through proxy|
I pretty much can not continue to use proxy servers because not many programs I wish I to use actually have the option to use a proxy server.
so I was thinking that below would work:
WinXP box with proxy setup
take the proxy in and change it so that other computers see it as a connection to the internet without proxy servers set up.
Same box but it goes out eth1

I have been reading for hours but I'm just having problems understanding what i'm reading because it's not very clear if it applies to what I need to do.
Thank you for any help, I look forward to being able to actually be able to connect to the internet fully.
