Question how to share a internet connection with fedora core and windows 2000

i have a computer with a DSL connection running the latest fedora core. it has two ethernet cards. one ethernet card is connected to the DSL modem. the other is connected to a windows 2000 pro computer. i'm using a crossover cable to connected them together.

i wanted to know if there was away to share or bridge the DSL connection so both computer can connect to the internet..

it's not done with bridging, it's done easiest via NAT, I'm on windows right now or I'd dig up the details.

when that's done, point to the linux box as the windows box's "gateway".

that should help.
