My network is a constant work in progress

I have most of my machines (386 and higher) running through a Belkin AT monitor/keyboard/mouse switcher. Hooked up to that is the following.....

-GEM/HP Celeron 500 in an old AT desktop case with custom paintwork, running Windows 98 SE, my #1 Comp, usually used for games and recording my own music

-Pentium Pro Tower, named Godzilla, the thing is nearly 4 feet tall. Runs Windows 98 SE, I intent to host my vintage computer site on it after I move out and gain some independance

-ZEOS 486 in a Flight 386 Case, running a DX4 and Windows For Workgroups 3.11 over DOS 6.22, my classic DOS games box

-Compaq Deskpro 386 2570 running DOS 6.00 and Windows 3.0, it's linked up but not networked fully yet (work in progress)

-My IBM PC-330 100DX4, my trusty little 486 that runs darn near anything put on it for some reason. This sucker runs stuff made to run on late model Pentiums in certain cases.

-and my Linux box, running Slackware, and pieced together out of everything from Electric Gutiar parts, some old AT PC's, a DEC 486, and an IBM PS/2 Valuepoint, basically, the mutt of the bunch

Outside of the switcher I have the following....

Micro Configurations Corp XT, With an IBM 5153 CGA Monitor and an MFM Hard Disk running on an RLL controller......

IBM PS/2 286 Model 30, my 286 system of course, complete with all the IBM perhipherals...

And my 5 laptops (286, 486, 486 and another 486). Only 2 have PCMCIA slots and thus can be networked without hardware hacking or trickery.

All computers run into a 5 port Linksys hub via Catagory 5 Ethernet cables, the first 4 I used were bought from Wal-Mart but I recently learned how to make my own cables. Anything with a PCI bus runs a 10/100 Base TX ethernet adapter, the rest use old surplus 10 mbps Lan Cards of various chipsets, brands, and bus widths.

ALL of my computers (yes, the XT and the 286 too) have internet access either via Proxy on the GEM or Godzilla, or go through my Serial port switcher to my v.92 56K Modem (heh, it's enough for me).

As far as owning this many computers, I'm still looking to find some Keyboard cables for my switcher so I can downsize to using my main brand new 17" KDS monitor and my old trusty 102 Key AT Enhanced keyboard (with an XT layout oddly enough), and my optical trackball. It's also a pain to wire this thing up after moving it, but when it's working, it's shockingly great. The 386's and higher do internet very well, but the 286's and XT of course, are a little on the slow side of things.

Home: small network from 2 to 4 computers running various versions of various operating systems. Usually it's just one Linux box and a WinDOZE98 machine. The linux box is currently running a apache server for development purposes, and an SQL server, same reason. Typically it has an SSH server or telnet server (depending on the OS de jour).

WORK: 22 3GHz Intel computers running RH Enterprise WS with two gigabit switches. Messner node (the main node) has a outside link to the world, only ssh is allowed through the hardware firewall and IPTables is blocking all but known computers from connecting. Internally, passwordless RSH is turned on for MPI to work it's magic. Additionally, there is a KVM switch wich allows the single keyboard, monitor, mouse to connect to each machine.
