Hello,
You can have a configured and running network inside a single linux machine,
only one script command is enough. After the start of all the machine, a
graphical representation of your topology helps your interactions with
the network. This virtual network can be downloaded at http://clownix.net,
I must warn you, it is a 350mega bz2 file-system that needs 4 giga on 
the host.
Very usefull for networking development in kernel as proved by bug 8895
that has been found with the above tool:

The uncorrected bug 8895:

file:  /usr/src/linux-2.6.24.2/net/ipv6/ip6_fib.c  line  796:   
"dst_free(&rt->u.dst);"

                if (fn->leaf == NULL) {

tree (fn->leaf = rt /* see above */)
                        ...
