You would need to configure internet sharing. This article may help you out. You can also buy an adsl router so that you don't have to share the connection through another PC.

thank you very much... 'll try it as soon as possible.
I don't need to buy an adsl router, i need to share the connection only very occasionally (when my girlfriend's here and she needs to work).
