G'day I have been in this forum for a few weeks now. I have been in the general Linux part. I was talking to Wizard with my Linux needs, but now, The Wizard adviced me to come to this part of the forum to advance my knowledge.
I would like to connect my two laptops to my pc (network them) by doing so I would like to also add multiple VMs to my pc. I would like to partition my pc correctly so that I may properly be able to do what I want to do.
A little about me. I am an IT Engineer Student loving the Linux world. I am still in school till August 2020. So for the moment i am studying to network pc and learning cisco. So i would like to practice with my home pc by connecting my two laptops to my pc and do multiple VMs in order to host multiple clients.

@hendricks54 You want to create a home network to connect all of your devices, right? Also, you forgot to mention what Linux distro you're on, I kind of remember from your other post that it's Mint, is that right? If so, this tutorial might just be what you need https://www.maketecheasier.com/setting-up-a-home-network-with-linux-mint/

Hope this helps! :)

OH right, forgot to tell you what system i am using, here it is:

Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon version 4.2.4
Processor: INtel Core iS-9600K CPU @ 3,70GHzx6
Memory: 31.2 GiB
HD: 3.64 TB

Because i am in school no money at the moment, Lol... i have this HD in the future i will get a SSD.
Yes, I want to create a home network connecting all my devices. Thank you for tutorial. Looking at it right now. I have at the moment a this:



I just connected my pc to it. I will be making more ethernet cable to connect my other devices. I just need to wait till Monday to get my connections and get that started. I will be making 1' (foot) length of ethernet cable. That is my plan. What suggestions do you have for VM that could work with my Linux. I tried Oracle with the Linux support but was not working. In the mean time i will do follow the tutorial. thank you very much for your assistance and advice.
