Cable Modem

Ah yea' ..... today at 6 pm or so the cable guys came and install our cable modem. They were gonna install a USB device and I was like, "No ... use an extra ethernet card." And he goes, "Okay, but why?" I say, "So we don't have to run Windows if we don't want." He goes, "But if you don't have Windows, what would you run? How would you use Internet Explorer?" *sigh* Linux, I say. Win98SE's Internet Connection sharing (IP masquerading, or NAT, whatever you want to call it) works okay, but it's still on Windows, so whenever somebody reboots, the house network connection goes down. Anyway, it's all working now, after shitloads of resource conflicts ... the 3rd network card did the trick (an old NE2000 ISA card... heh.) But yeah, hella fast now.... lovin' it.
