not have the slightest idea on how to do it.

Anyone out there with a good example?? Please email to me your solutions and

Thanks in advance.

Got a mini network of sorts setup using 10base2 (thin coax) that's mainly
used for playing games and passing (big) files. Looking at investing in

Anybody have this kind of setup? Care to share any setup tips?

Nope, no dedicated server. Just peer-to-peer.

Looked at Linksys's Pocket Print Server. Supports Win95, NT, and

Currently running RH 4.1, possibly going to RH 4.2 sometime.
