What sort of "connection" are you looking for? Are you trying to move files between the machines?

First you need to supply more information before we can try to answer you question, and you should post in the Networking section of LQ Forums.

What sort of network do you want? File sharing, shared printers, & internet connections, all use different set-ups.

Have a look in the Tutorials section, and a good place to start is here:

Be patient, and try and give as much info about your installation as you can. The more vague the question, the less able we are to answer.

The solution you are seeking is simple enough that you can configure the workstations yourself. However the process of explaining the answer could take very long here. So it is more helpful to you if I give you the necessary "reference" guides, tutorials that you can go back for immediate answers while you work.

Here is a link that offers several good tutorials. Right click the Linux Administration Guide and Save it into a folder for reference and quick answers. These are all in easy to print or plainly read pdf format.

Hope this helps.
