Internet connection sharing between two Ubuntu computers
I'm still fairly new to Linux, so I don't quite know how to share an internet connection. Here's what my set up looks like:
Cable Modem -> ethernet cable -> Computer 1 (Network Card 1)
Computer 1 (Network Card 2) -> crossover ethernet cable -> Computer 2
In Windows XP, I could connect the crossover cable to another computer running XP and it usually had working internet. Both computers are running Ubuntu, so it shouldn't be too hard to share a connection, right? Like I said, I don't know too much about Linux, so please give me some easy to understand instructions.
