Sharing dial up connection over WiFi to XP box


Greetings!

I am trying to share the dial up connection from my slack box to wifey's XP box.

I am not sure where to start; so if there are any simple guides around I'd be very grateful for a pointer.

I have tried using firestarter to share connections and have been messing around with iwconfig, ifconfig for hours without much joy.

I can connect the slack box to the internet quite comfortably with either dial up or wireless but I'll be buggered if I can work out how to share the dial up over eth1 (my wireless nic) and I am a complete networking idiot

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much for the reply nazmin , but what I am trying to do is the other way round from the link you gave me.

I want to share the dial-up ppp0 on my slackbox over Ad-Hoc wireless mode with the XP box.

I need to research some more, but many thanks again for the reply, that info will probably come in handy in the future
