Connecting Linux box to Internet through Windowx XP box over LAN

Hi; I have started using linux only a few days back. I have 2 computers connected physically through an Ethernet switch. One computer runs on Windows XP and another computer runs on Red Hat Linux 9.0. I have a dialup Internet connection on my Windows XP machine (i use internal modem). I want to share this connection with my Linux machine. And also, I want to configure my LAN to enable File sharing... Now I am completly new to linux and hence dont know anything about configuring networks under linux, under windows XP it was too easy. Please F1....

Best Regards,
Pradeep P. Chandiramani

You can use SAMBA com share files but as XP uses the NT file system you will have read only access, i guess.
With samba you can share files, devices.
