Computer - as a wireless access point?

Is it possible to set a computer up (ie a linux box) as a wireless access point? And if so, what hardware would I need? Am I correct in thinking it is as straightforward as to install a PCI wireless card and set mode to access point instead of ad-hoc somehow?

That should normally be about it - it will depend on the card you use (it will need to provide the same as the routers do as far as auth and machine control is concerned).
