Need help to build router on old pc
I have an Pentium 133MHz with 8MB RAM. I'm trying to build a router with that old pc using dual NICs. I'm using the slim case and fan less cpu. I dont want to use the Harddrive. just the floppy drive.
What I was plannin to do is that I have a broadband connection and I wanted to connect more than 3 computers. I dont need firewalls on it. just for Multiplayer game machines hooked up to internet. 20 game PCs on 1 internet.
Is there a small router program out there? That is really easy as "Plug-N-Play"?
I have plenty NICs, HDs, FDD, CDD, RAMs, MOBOs, eerr can't think what more I have.
I would like a list what I need to build and step by step guide.
Anyone help me?

I'm no great expert, But I say LINUX.
It's probably the only system that will allow you to do this from a floppy disk only.
Although, It probably would not be easy if you don't already know what you're doing (sorry, I can't help you - It would take ME weeks to work out how).
