There's a guide here from someone who's set up a Voyager -- I suppose
it's a 100.

Don't know about this one, but if its got 4 ethernet ports then perhaps
you can connect your PC to one of these and set it up that way. would be a good guess at an address to use.

 This one works well. There's easy-peasy packages in Gentoo and
Mandrake, and when I used Debian (about a year ago) it was a bit tedious
to set up, but it worked. There's probably a deb package for it now.
But if you've already got 2 ADSL modems then that's enough for one
person :)
