lan internet


Hey -
I just installed RedHat Linux 7.1 onto a desktop computer in my house. I get my internet through a LAN on the other computer (Win2000); I have another Linux box set up as a webserver/router. How can I set up the new Linux machine to get internet through that router? Thanks

Is the router a DHCP server also (does it supply 192.168.x.x ip addresses)?

Don't forget to setup DNS entries in /etc/resolv.conf

This of course is only an issue if you are not using a DHCP server that's pushing DNS into linux.
