how to setup a network using 1 cpu i.e how to implement linux multiuer one box concep


hi,

i want to setup a network in which only one cpu is used n all terminals are being used independently using same cpu with the help of just one keyboard and a monitor(without any extra cpu for each).since linux is a multiuser o.s. thus i want to implement this concept(1 box concept),but i dont understand what accessories 'll be needed for it and how to setup it.please tell me the hardware required to do this job either through network or serial. I cant understand that how we can create another terminal with the help of just 1 keyboard and a monitor.
please some body help me.

Well, this is not difficult from the standpoint of Linux. The hardware issues need to be addressed -- would you be connecting the terminals by way of a network, or by way of serial interfaces? The network approach is simpler, and guess what? -- Linux would become available to any number of network connections "out of the box", that is, without any special configuration. All the sysadmin would need to do is create a lot of user accounts.

If the terminals were to be connected by way of serial ports, that's more difficult, but I suspect this isn't the direction you're headed.

So, we need more details, preferably expressed in complete words and grammatical sentences, if at all possible.
