I realize that even $40 can be a lot of money depending on one's monetary
situation. Looking at pricewatch.com I see the 3Com ISA NIC for $14 and an
Encore PCI NIC for $5. Order from the same site and figure on $11
shipping. The local Radio Slack will have a cross-over ethernet cable for $10.
My point is that (here in the US at least) setting up a two node ethernet
is not as expensive as many folks think.
Adding more nodes can be done for the price of the needed NICs, a $30-$40
5-port hub, and cabling.
Have fun :~)
