Newbie Network Question

Hi, I am thinking of installing linux for the first time (redhat 9) and I was wondering how easy (or even if it is possible) to keep my home network going.

I'm using the Linksys Wireless-G router, and my computer is connected by cat5 to the router, the other 2 computers are runing Win 2k/XP

I'm going to be doing a dual boot with XP, and it is important that I'd be connected to the network. Will I have any problems?

No, you should not have any problems, certainly not with your current XP installation, and with help you won't have any problems getting linux to work on your network too
