The 2.0.X Linux Kernels support Bridging. This modules contains documentation and a tool to configure bridging. Any protocol can be bridged not only protocols that are supported by the Kernel. Bridging is very efficient by determining which Ethernet MAC addresses are on which side of the Bridge and forwarding only packets that are necessary. Linux will work like an Ethernet Switch!
You should have at least Linux 2.0.22 installed with Bridging enabled for this to work. Earlier kernels have a memory leak.
