I want to create a development network in my basement, coming from a standard cable modem.
I know how to configure lamp apache2, nfs and samba, etc.
But I don't know how to make the network happen.
Perhaps the lamp box needs to be a DHCP server for all other boxes on the basement subnet.
Do I need to put two network cards in the linux box (the server) and run it as a router?
Do I need some sort of locally-authoritative name serving too?
Anybody know of any home-networking for advanced dummies tutorials? (I've been looking but not finding)
