$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
 - my server has address, gateway and runs a DHCP
   server for that subnet 
 - my thin clients have ip addresses in the range
 - all are plugged into the same switch/hub.

What sort of network layout are you trying to set up?
