Looking for help configuring a home network between a Windows XP Home computer and a Linux Redhat 8.0 computer. Please keep in mind that i have very little experience with networks. In addition, i have about an hour and a half of experience with Linux... Im trying to get the WinXP and Linux comps to be able to share files etc. and the Linux machine to connect to the internet via the WinXP machine. I installed Redhat as graphical server. The WinXP machine has two ethernet cards, both installed. One connects to the internet through DSL, the other i am trying to configure the network over. The Linux machine has an ethernet card not in use, trying to use it for the network. Very grateful for any help in this. Please take me through it slowly, as i am pretty new to configuring networks and even newer to the Linux OS.
