Windows XP Fedora Core 2

Ok I will post here as well I really am in a tough spot.

Trying to do my first network. Windows XP on my girls computer and my Linux Fedora Core 2 .

One dsl connection which I would like my network to share. This would pass through my linux box.

After intense reading making my linux box a router is the best bet.

What I have gotten done---------------------------------
I have successfully gotten both boxes to ping each other.

dont know how to share files.

worse problem-----------------------
when i push in my ethernet card the one connected to the hub that networks the two pcs I lose internet connecttion.

i click return on my mozilla to go to the previous page while at the same time i push in the ethernet card .

I lose internet connection and cant find the previous page. My yahoo messeenger and my AIM both disconnect.

thankyou for the help

Don't know much about networking two boxes to share a DSL. But havea couple of questions and apossible idea for ya.
What do you mean by 'push' your ethernet card ? physically push it into the PCI slot, push the cable into it [rj45 connector].
now sharing files to a winXP box is fairly easy, set up SAMBA on your box - write your config file to be verry simple, workgroup and a share - giving full access, then experiment with it to tighten security.

Accessing shares from your girl's win box, again, once you have samba, you can mount her shared dir with [AFAIR] mount -t smbfs //box/Sharname /mnt/location

hope this helps.
I'll watch this thread for your answers to my above questions.

Answers to the questions above.

Physically push the card into the laptop slot.
