Question Xandros Dual Boot Network

I have Xandros OC and Win98SE on a dual boot machine. I am planning on networking the machine to my WinXP box to share files/intermet through a Linksys BEFSR41. I think the Win98 and XP setups are pretty straight-forward by the directions with the router. My questions are:

1. Do I need to boot to Xandros then set up the machine again through that OS?

2. If so, I heard Xandros networks VERY easily do I go about it? Is it automatic?

3. Another question is: can I simply switch from USB connection to the ethernet connection on my Motorola Surfboard? (Don't ask me why I hooked it up through USB in the first place...I have no idea why I did that.)

I appreciate your help. This website has been an invaluable resource for my Linux experience.

Thanks again,
Rob Evans

Your probably set up by now, But just in case, I use Xandros O.C.E and yes, She does network very least in my experience with my Linksys wireless adapter. Yes after dual boot setup, you will have to go into Start>ControlCenter>Network>Network Connection, click on Administrator and enter the appropriate info..(Interface name, your network name etc..) The easiest way to go in my opinion is to use DHCP. Oh And one more thing. I have been haveing some connection issues when useing my dual boot configuration. havent been able to figure it out yet so be warned.
