If you mean changing from:

INTERNET --[ A hub ] -- linux box
          /  |   |  \
      host host host host


INTERNET --linux box--[ hub ] ---host
                      /  |  \
                   host host host

Then I guess nothing needs to be changed, provided the boxen have linux box
set as default gateway.

No need to apologize for your english; it's quite good, though I'm not a
native speaker :-)
