    What kind of help?
    What do you want to do?
    What have you tried so far?
    How are you sharing the internet between the XP PCs?

    all i can get

    I have my cable modem plug up to my linux pc. Then going out to a Linksys
    5port workgroup hub then the other two pc run of that. I share the internet
    that way when I run xp on all three it works fine but I don't Know that much
    about linux shareing when I try to active both nec cards in linux the one
    going to the hub does not active. Try to use I don't remeber what they call
    it for shure the setting above blind to mac address if you know what that is
    I have to look right now I am on xp. That way it will active both nec cards
    but then it would not let me on internet any where I can pig my other pc
    that way but no internet like I said I need All The Help I Can Get. :haha:

    Unless anyone else has a better suggestion, I recommend these instructions:

    Let us know how you get on.

    It would be, of course, easier if you used the Windows machine to share the connection, if you are new to Linux.
