Unhappy


I am extremely new to linux but would like to use it for a gateway. I am trying to connect two computers to a single eternet connection. I put together a box specifically for this purpose. I want to connect my two computers to this one box and then connect the box to the wall. does anyone know where their is a tutorial that is in a language that even a monkey can use it? basically i need someone to hold my hand while i do this.
thank you

Maybe it's a good idea to learn something about networking in linux and networking in general. The next HOWTO's are good places to start. I think there is no tutorial for this because a lot depends on you hardware and ethernet.

good luck.
