I checked the LDP and found a mini-HOWTO on using kernel-based bridging support. That answers many of my questions, but there are still some things I don't quite understand:
1. How exactly do I remove the IP address from an interface? Assigning one is trivial, but removing one is something I'm not farmilliar with.
2. The HOWTO says that there should be no IP address bound to any interface in the bridge, but this rig is a workstation, not a dedicated bridge, and as such, at least one device needs an IP, but which one? The wireless adapter, which faces the segment connected to the router, or the ethernet adapter, which faces the 'local' segment?
Again, thanks for any advice.
Edit: I guess I should mention my distro. This particular rig runs a CVS build of LFS from sometime in May 2002. It's in desperate need of a rebuild...
