Minimalist Firewall with Slackware 14.0
This is my first post in the forum. I am playing with Linux again after a ten year hiatus. I started with Slackware and recently purchased Slackware 14.0. My goal is to build a minimalist firewall to keep selected cookies out of my house.
The first problem I ran into was getting multiple network cards alive in with the kernel. That leads to my questions.
1) What do I need to copy from the CDs to compile kernel support for multiple cards? and
2) What directories do I copy them to so that I don't break the package updaters?
They are simple questions but stem from my previous experience with Linux. Back then I had time to burn to figure out the file permissions that I broke. Not so much anymore.
Thanks in advance for your help and keeping software open.
