I'm using wireless broadband powered by SOMAport™ 300 and planned to setup small home networking to access the internet. I just got these stuffs:

- Pentium III 866MHz (I think if I need a small server or firewall)
- Prolink PSW808 8-port Switch
- PCI NIC (2 units)
- 2 PC's for gaming, internet (built-in Lan).

So how can I build my own network for two PC's (and maybe 5 soon) to share the internet access? How about the best os for server i.e: WinXP or Linux and also the configuration for both os. My IP was assigned by DHCP but I'm sure it was Dynamic or Static IP because when I off & on the SOMAport, so many times but still got the same IP.
