Default Resources for Home Network Design and Implementation


I am thinking of networking together the computers in my house (those I have and those I will get). Here is the general network layout I am thinking of:

                                                  |---|Computer 1|
                                                  |    ----------
                 ---------     ---------------    |    ----------
---phone line---|DSL modem|---|firewall/router|---|---|Computer 2|
                 ---------     ---------------    |    ----------
                                                  |    ----------
                                                  |---|Computer 3|
What I am looking for right now are good resources that I can read up on for the configuration and implementation of such a network. Things I would think I need to read up on are configuring the firewall, how to allow each host to talk to each other (ftp, ssh, vnc, etc.), how to have each have access to the internet with only one DHCP assigned IP address from the ISP, how to setup a network printer(s), etc.
And the WORD was made flesh, and dwelt among us. (John 1:14)
