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.

ADSL RH9 and 3 NIC's
I have set up a server connected to a Conexant ADSL modem. The modem is set to get its ip by dhcp (although it is set to 10.0.0.2 by default for LAN). I then have it statically ip set for LAN allowing 10.0.0.3 (the server) to communicate with it.
My problem is that I have never set 3 NIC's up in the same PC. I have done 2 where the adsl router/modem has a static ip, and then I have had the other nic for the lan.
This time I only want 2 pc's to connect to the server without the need for a hub.
What is the best way to do this ? I don't want to use dhcp on the LAN side.
Do I have to assign a separate ip for each of the nic's ?
If so, should each windows pc should use that specific card's address as the gateway ? I take it I can't assign the same ip to all 3 nic's ?
Scratching my head for a while now and not getting too far. The server is on the internet no problem.
Finally (lots of questions I know !) is it right considering that I have set the modem to be dhcp assigned - should my linux box use the isp's dns - or just the modem's ip for dns ?
