Hi All,

Tuesday I purchased an Acer Aspire One with Linpus Linux preinstalled and I
am not disappointed. Wednesday I discovered how to open a terminal window.

The Aspire One has a competent 11g wireless adapter. This is an
accomplishment in a university village environment with many 11n routers
nearby. I would like to bridge the wireless adapter and the Ethernet adapter
on my Aspire One so I can connect to my Dlink DI604 wired router and feed
Internet connectivity to all my other gear. This is easily done by mouse
clicks in MS Vista. I presume the command line and some file editing is
involved in Linux. Could someone please give me a head start on the
solution?

Thanks in advance.
