    Hi Friends,
    I need to deploy a GNU/Linux distro based proxy server in a CyberCafe, which has a DIAS(Cable Internet in LAN) & Dishnet DSL Broadband connection.

    DIAS connection connects to a LAN card by RJ45 connection & Dishnet DSL connects with a Aztech DSL 100U USB Cable Modem.

    I want to use Squid Proxy server to share the connection with 15 PC.
    But how can i configure a Fail-Over system in which the second connection automatically connects when the active connection fails??
    Any help in this regard??

    My choice of Distro is Fedora Core 1, PCQ Linux 2004. Can anyone suggest a good stable distro for this purpose?

    The configuration of the server is:-
    P4 2.4GHz with Gigabyte Intel 865 Chipset
    512 MB DDR RAM;2 LAN cards; 40GB 7200HDD 15in Monitor


    PLz reply soon.
