Help choosing distro for DSL internet sharing with Windows XP
i'm a windows user with previous linux experience (Red Hat 9) and currently i'm looking to use linux again (dual boot).
My main concern is that i have a local home network, in wich the modem is connect to the other computer (Windows Xp), and i have the connection shared (if he's online, so am i - if he's not, so am i).
So i'm looking for distros in wich network configuration is easier.
Also if you can point a tutorial using said distro (from forum or not - it would be much aprecciated).
I'm googling for those things right now, but any help would be an advance.
PS - i will not use a router - so that's out of question.
