Do you have a broad band connection (cable/dsl)?  If so, do yourself a favor
and buy a linksys router.
If your dual boot machine is going to serve as the gateway you'll need to do
it twice, once in *nix and once in doze.
It ain't worth the hassle when you can get a 4 port 10/100 switch/router for

I know money doesn't grow on trees but sometimes that hassle isn't worth it,
especially if the computer routing is going to be booting back and forth.
