I have two linux boxes and two windows machines linked up over a local
ethernet. I use a hub, however. Don't know much about cross over cables.
My two linux boxes seem to work fine in my situation they both came up
without incident. I bought a hub with eight ports for $60; I think 4 port
hubs are also available for less.
