How to start Home Networking without HUB

Hello there,

I have a RH7.2 Linux Box and I want to connect it to my Notebook using Win 98 + Win2000 using cross connect Lan cable without any HUB/Switch.

I have installed SAMBA on my Linux, don't know if it is correctly configured or not !

My Linux box has only one Ethernet Card and usually I connect it to the Cable Modem for Internet, however since I have no HUB and no second NIC (until now), so to start at experimental level I want to connect my Win Notebook with Linux using simple cross connect cable.

I dont know much, so will appreciate your advices how can I realize this ?

Thanks a lot !!!!!
