using dialup modem for ics??
I am brand new to linux. I've used SLAX a few times to test it out before installing anything on my laptop but thats about it. I am using Slackware 11 right now and ive compiled kernal 2.6.5 (I don't know if you need to know that or not).
I have a desktop running winXP home which is connected through a linksys router(wrt45g) through an ethernet cable. I was wondering if it was possible to use the desktop's dialup modem to share the cable connection to the laptop. The laptop is quite old (toshiba tecra 8000) and doesn't have an ethernet port, but has the phone in port. I understand that if this worked, there would be a greatly reduced connection speed but is pretty much my only option. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
