Have you got cable or DSL internet? If so, I would recommend getting a wireless gateway/router. That way you don't have to have the other machine on in order to use the internet, plus, it's much easier to manage. If you're on Dial-Up, it can be a little tricky.

here's a posting from on how to share a connection from ubuntu:
