>Went with Red Hat. 8.0 was the latest version I could find on CD (old box),
so I set it up with eth0 as local (10.0.0.1), eth1 as remote (192.168.0.2),
no joy. Fiddled around with it for an hour or two, eventually got myself
pinging the LAN and the Internet, but no NATing going on. Stuck the ADSL
router back on the Windows box, coverted it to a modem, set up PPPoE on the
Red Hat box and transferred the modem back, no joy. Total pain in the arse.
I'll figure out this networking crap if it kills me. And it probably will
kill me, what with crawling around under the frigging table plugging stuff
in and out all frigging day. Brings a whole new meaning to "iptables". Adam
Beecher, killed by iptables. May he rest in PC.
