I have an old powerbook g4 (power pc), which is about to get debian 6 installed on it. I was considering using this powerbook as a home proxy/firewall so that I could get a better grip on iptables, tcp/ip and linux in general.
I understand that this powerbook g4 needs to have two NICs. I have a Dynex (model: DX-E202) PCMCIA ethernet card that could work as the second NIC, but unfortunately there do not appear to be drivers for linux, and I can't use ndiswrapper, as this is a mac powerpc, and I don't have the know-how to write a driver for it.
Do I have any alternatives here, other than buying a different NIC?
