    Home network setup


    I would appreciate it if someone could point to a good tutorial on how to set up a home network. I have just finished putting together a 'new' computer from a lot of old parts I had lying around and I want to try setting it up as a server. I have two other machines to connect up to it, one of which runs winXP, and the other which runs xinXP, Fedora Core 2, and Slackware 10.1.
    Thanks.
