Build yourself a Linux-based Internet gateway
"Getting a Linux-based gateway to run from scratch was an interesting learning experience. Some things were quite opaque and difficult to get working, and it takes some tolerance for frustration to get things up and running (and again, I'm talking about without the help of GUI-based tools that are included in most distributions to make the processes much less difficult). Bridging is my major pet peeve in this respect -- some more solid documentation is needed here. Getting an ISA card to work can be annoying as well, thanks to the inherent shortcomings of ISA, since it can involve trying several different IO addresses and IRQs; some diagnostic tools would make this step easier and less frustrating."
