    4 ports no stopping now

    first things first hello everyone
    Id like to ask a few questions

    first some basic information
    Im running Fedora Core 4 on an AMD sempron with 512 ram and 4 ethernet ports

    Id like to run this config

    eth 0 home desktop (
    eth 1 incomming cable from comcast (DHCP)
    eth 3 wireless linksys access point for laptop and xbox 360 (
    eth 4 will be a just in case type deal (

    how is it possible for me to set this up.

    I was told to create


    which needs to contain the hostname and the IP address

    my scheme is going to be as listed above
    Im aware that Ill need to create these files under root in the etc dir but as far as what they contain or how they should look im clueless.

    Ive never delt with Linux before
