Hi all, I'm currently a university student - and myself and three friends will soon be moving into a new flat. We will be installing 1mb broadband, and it has been suggested that we install our own network - so we can share printers/files and most importantly internet-access. We are currently running two PC desktops, one on windows xp home, and one running fedora redhat. The other two systems are laptops, one windows xp professional, and my powerbook running panther. How would we even go about setting up a network? Would it be possible to avoid the need to run a computer 24/7? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Andrew.
