ad-hoc connection (and internet sharing) between two linux boxes. A complex question.

I explain the situation I'd like to change :

I got a pc with Windows Xp taking an adsl connection from an Aethra Starmodem (pppoa, no access point) . This pc, via a vivanco 11mb usb wlan share the connection with a Mandrake box equipped with a dwl-650+ card through an ad-hoc connection.

All goes smooth. But now I want to get rid of Windows in the first pc and replace it with another copy of Mandrake.

I know that Aethra Starmodem works under Mandrake. But :

I don't know if the vivanco dongle works, and, if yes, can I bild the same solution I have at this time ( I mean ad-hoc connection with internet sharing between two linux Mandrake boxes) ?

Please, help me
