Xbox 360 Live + Linux (OpenSUSE)

Hello all!

I am currently installing OpenSUSE Linux on my laptop. At the same time I am moving into a new apartment where I will need to setup Wireless connection for all of my internet items.

My question is, when you use Windoze, you can avoid having to buy Wireless adapter for the 360 by plugging your Ethernet cable into a Wireless connected PC and sharing the connection. Are you able to do the same kind of thing w/ Linux? If so, could someone point me in the right direction? I am slightly functional w/ command line and always willing to learn. Thanks.

Yep. You'll need to do something called 'NAT' or 'IP Masquerading'. Googling those will get you a wealth of info. Or just look through Yast for those words, and you might get lucky.
