I guess I should have expressed it better. If you have the network
and gateway specified in the ifcfg-eth0 file on the laptop, the
scripts will configure the routes for you. (I believe Windows does
the same thing with its network config information.) On the F10
machine, you will not want the gateway specified for the the
interfaces that have the laptops connected.

Now, if you have one laptop connected to each interface, and you are
using the same network range for both, then you are probably better
off using a PtP (PPP) setup, and proxyarp.

OK. Thanks for replaying. I'll try the script. And it's a good proposition about PtP. I'll check it in case the script won't work magically.
