How do you bridge networks on linux? Or share a network's internet connection?

OK, here is what I need to do. I have a wireless network, that is how my computer gets internet access, from the wireless PCI card. Then, I have a crossover ethernet cable running from my computer to my Xbox, which is to give my xbox the internet connection that comes to my computer (which is through the wireless network)

I got this set up just fine on windows, but I don't know how to do it on linux. I am using knoppix, BTW.

to provide internetaccess for your xbox you have to enable "routing" on your linux-bos. This is turned off by default for security reasons.

I would connect the xbos to the router (if possible).
The router should provide a connection from your pc to your xbos.
