Does anyone know of documentation for a Linux hub or a Linux

Hello all,

I did this once years ago, used a Debian machine with 5 nics as a switch between multiple network segments to reduce broadcast storms and generally improve  network performance. I do not have the exact instructions now, I think it was on tldp.org that I found it. Google for "linux bridge". This site http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/networking/bridge looks like what I did way back when.
