Ok, win 2k works great and I reach crazy speeds of 730KB/s on downloads. I share my internet connection through ICS and it works perfect. The only problem is, i can't gain access to the win 2k server from a client computer. I get this password window that does not accept any of my passwords set in win 2K. Should I set up login names for 2K and have all clients log into it? Second, how in the hell do I get Linux to work with my @Home cable connection or through a network. Thanks

I am not too familiar with W2K, but if the permissions are similar to NT, then I would say go ahead and setup user names/login on the W2K box.

As for setting up Linux on a network, whole books have been writen for that subject. An excellent site, IMO, to start off at would be www.linuxnewbie.org. (http://www.linuxnewbie.org.) The site has some great help files and links to other linux help sites.

Good luck.
