  1. the other two computers will be running win2k or winxp... i would like the server to act as a gateway for the other two computers as well as to be able to be accessed by the other two computers for filesharing purposes IE; if i download something on one of the second computers and dont want to store it on it's hard drive, so i would store it on the server's drive. Well, to share files between the Linux computer and the windows computer, you would have to use samba. To use your computer as a gateway/firewall you would have to use iptables. Although, I would really have to advice not to u

  3. so here's the deal. I have one old 486 computer, one AMD 500mhz, and one intel 800mhz. they are all ethernet enabled. i have been told that an old 486 with a linux distribution and some tweaking will make a great networking server, but the problem is, i dont know what distribution to use, or how to set the distribution up for networking with the other computers. basically, i would like to set up the 486 as a server behind my cable modem for the other two computers. i would also like to be able to store and retrieve data on the hard drive of the 486 from the other two computers
