Connecting to net THROUGH xp

I'm using Fedora Core 1/win2K dual-boot on a network of 3 computers, 2 xp and mine.

My Broadband connection uses a (bt)modem with no linux drivers and I can't afford a router yet, so....

I have run the net connection through one of the xp computers and I want to connect to the internet through that xp computer while running fedora.

I have no idea on how to do this. It's easy enough on a windows comp to connect thru another comp on the network, but how (if at all) can I do it on linux?

enable ics on the windows box. then set the default gateway of the linux box to the ip address of the windows machine where the internet connection is at. you'll probably have better luck with static ip adresses for everything except the internet connection. is the lan connected by a hub, switch, ?

<edit>make sure the firewall will allow the remote connection.</edit>
