I hate to sound patronizing, but that's how I set up my home network -
that HOWTO alone. Do you have any particular questions? What do you
not understand there? Maybe you should read again.
Read the sections dealing with IP assignments, and commands
"ifconfigure" and "route". That's mostly what it takes to get a
network running. Once you are able to ping the other machine, you are
also able to telnet and ftp to it.
The rest depends on what you want to do with your network.
