Full Version: Dual Boot Networking

I am thinking of running a dual boot on my system with Red Hat 8 and Windows 2000 (Yeah, I realize how much of a pain that's going to be to set up). One thing I'm curious about this is whether I should give each operating system its own IP address for my network, so my other computer (W2k only) can distinguish between the two. By the way I am using a hub to connect between the two, and I'm pretty sure those direct by IP, not MAC Address. Is this going to cause any problems?

Thanks, Eric

I dont think you will need to do that. If it is your private home network, I am sure you are using a private network, so you have plenty of IPs to spare, but it isnt necessary. As long as you address them by different names, if you are running Samba on the Linux system, then you will be fine.
