$100? I would have thought $20 should cover it. However.

You need to give us a bit more information here. What exactly is not
I use edubuntu with one network card without any complications.
- broadband router plugs into the network with address 192.168.0.1
- my server has address 192.168.0.254, gateway 192.168.0.1 and runs a DHCP
server for that subnet
- my thin clients have ip addresses in the range 192.168.0.100-253
- all are plugged into the same switch/hub.
What sort of network layout are you trying to set up?
