One item I see that will be a problem is the address you show for the
gateway, 192.168.1.255/255.255.255.0. Since this is the broadcast address
for the subnet your are using this will not work. 192.168.1.1 -
192.168.1.254 are the only usable addresses for this subnet/netmask combo.
I think you should change that first to eliminate future network problems.

Get the networking between the PC's working first and then start on
getting your internet access working, samba and then squid so that you have
a better understanding on how all the components work together.

Also, go one step at a time and document what you do for future reference.


I don't quite understand because i currently have a Win 2000 Pro and a Win 98 SE set up on the Isolated network with the Linux Box and they can all see and/or ping each other easily, as well a share files. I also have a second netwr with 2 Win XP, 1 Win 98, and a Win 2000 Pro all of which have that same config and none of them have any problems. On all windows computers i am running tcp/ip, ipx..., and netbios protocalls, that is if this changes anything.
I beleave that i might have hade a complaint from my linux box on this subject but it was when i was configuring samba and all i had to do to fix it was to use the network restart command at the prompt.
