Thanks. That does look like exactly what I''m trying to do. I actually have a 
WRT54G here. But, it's configured to just be plugged in and work, in the 
event that my FC4 box goes down, or if I need to perform hardware/software 
upgrades on the box. With an FC5 install looming in a couple of months, I 
don't think I want to reassign this router to this immediate need. I guess I 
need to just bite the bullet and get a wireless NIC for that other machine 
that will work with Linux as well as Windows... Unless someone else has a 
better idea.
