How to create a Linux-based network of computers for peanuts (part 3)

Author: JT Smith

From a LinuxWorld feature: "There are few technical reasons not to use twisted-pair and 10- or 100BaseT
Ethernet if that is what you prefer, and don't mind spending the money. Any
up-to-date book on networks explains the advantages of this newer technology. My
advice is for 50 or fewer devices, don't rip out an existing Thinnet installation and
upgrade to new NICs and cabling thinking this will increase performance. For 50 or
more PC X terminals, however, the equation tilts in the other direction."
