Hello All;

I have a home network (LAN) consisting of three Microsoft Windows XP Home machines and one Microsoft Windows Me machine. What would I have to do to connect a Linux machine to this network? The object is to provide internet access.
My network is a phone line network, each client machine already has its own network card (AMD PCnet-Home Based Network Adapter (Generic) and all clients are setup with internet access, and the connection is configured by TCP/IP.

Thanks for your help

JB

Have a look at ipcop (http://www.ipcop.org/cgi-bin/twiki/view/IPCop/WebHome) or smoothwall (http://smoothwall.org/), both are linux firewall/router distro's for home/soho networks.
