Slackware 10.1 WindowsXP crossover cable internet sharing
I have just installed Slackware on my laptop. My laptop is connected to my partners laptop running XP via crossover cable and I wish to share the internet connection.
My partners laptop is connected to wireless broadband (I am unable to get linux to find the card, it's an IPWirelss PCMCIA card).
Both computers can ping each other successfully.
The thing I find odd, is if I boot from the Ubuntu live cd the internet connection sharing *just works* (same goes for SuSE and when I boot them both in windows).
I'm feeling a little stranded, I can't even find the command to restart networking in slackware. I was used to using "/etc/init.d/network restart" in SuSE.
Can one of you slack-sperts out there tell me where I find the network configuration menus and so on, what the network restart command is, or anything else that you think might be the problem??
Thanks in advance,
