Pls bear in mind that I 've no experience in networking...Pls advise.
I wish to setup my linux based PC as a server to my local user group for about 20 users. I have a 3COM NIC, an IP and Hostname given to me by the network administrator.
Pls show me how to install and configure the network card so that my PC can go online so that I can use the netscape navigator to surf net. Can I check the network connection using "ping" command.
And also Recommend me a good site/HOWTO page regarding how to start up a local network from an existing network especially for a novice user as I have browse thru some but rather complicated to understand.
Thanks a lot.
