I am new to Linux and am interested in replacing our Windows router with a Linux router. I would like to eventually be able to capture network traffic between three segments using Ethereal but have a couple of questions.

1. I currently have Red Hat Linux 9. Is this an OK version of Linux to use as a router or should I use something else?

2. Should the machine be be setup as a server or workstation?

3. Is there any documentation that exists for setting up Linux as a router for multiple segments?
