I am a newcomer to Linux and would like to inquire about
the possibility of establishing a peer-to-peer LAN with Linux
machines.  Is it possible?  And how to establish such a LAN with NICs and cables and in summary how to define
the shared resources along the same lines as in peer-to-peer LAN with win95?

It's perfectly possible to setup a mixed network (Linux/wfw/W95)
Hardware : NIC (3com or NE2000), COAX-cables, Terminators and T's.
Software : You can use samba to share disk and printer devices.

You can also share modems, create a networkfax, central backups,
and share you PPP-connection.
