My situation is i have college in 6 weeks. in these dorms you get 2 ethernet ports, 1 for your roomate and 1 for you. i will have my linux and win2k box's with me using a KVM to save room. now, i know that i plug my linux box into that 1 ethernet port. and then i used a 2nd nic to plug it into my hub that ill bring with. then add in the win2k box on the next port of the hub. i have never gateway'd before and it would be of some help, if anyone could point me in the direction of learning to get both of these on the colleges T1 lan, as well as have linux as my gateway. if i could get this to work i would have a very sweet setup. any help is appreciated.
