thanks for your help, i really want to get the net working on linux.
Did you try pinging your dad's machine? If that works, your network is fine.
I prefer to use a proxy server instead of Internet Connection Sharing. The cable line in my house is connected to my dad's Windoze 98 Box. I downloaded several proxy servers such as Winproxy, Analogx, Janaserver etc and found 602Pro LAN Suite most to my liking. Try any one of these and see the one you like best.
