Internet access through Windows XP LAN


How do I configure a WinXP computer so a Linux computer can access Internet through it?
I know this can be done since I've had it working beautifully till this morning. I was curious about the new version of Slackware 8.1, and decide it was upgrade time getting rid of old Slackware 7.
Now I have a fancy KDE 3 desktop, but no Internet connection from it
This is how it was set up when it worked:
IP: 192.168.0.20
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Stnd. gateway 192.168.0.1

I think I got the figures from Win 98 Ipconfig command, but now when I'm running WinME/Win2K sharing Internet connection with an XP computer, IP numbers are different.

The only connection I get from Slackware 8.1 is to itself, pinging 127.0.0.1 or localhost.

Slackware forum seems to be closed so anyone has an idea?
Please help me, I need to get some work done in linux!

|213.67.126.1

|-- Amilo laptop
|Windows 2000
|IP:autoconfig
|255.255.0.0


I've been trying to run Mandrake (and Win98) in VMware 3.1 on the computer that is connected to the Internet, but it wouldn't connect either using bridged networking. Wouldn't connect to anything so I gave up on that hoping the new version of Slackware would work as the old one (or better) on the IBM machine.

I also used the same network configuration before successfully when booting up Solaris 8 on the same IBM machine.

Inernet sharing and file sharing works fine between Windows machines (or OS:s). I'd like it to work as fine with Linus/Unix as well...

This issue was solved by allowing Internet sharing in XP network properties. Someone had un-selected it...
