if you assign it an ip address, just make sure that ip is in the same network w/ the ip of the windows machine. For example, if the windows machine has the ip then the linux machine should have the ip
Second thing is that you need to assign manually the dns server to the linux machine as well. In order to do this use the windows machine to find out those info.

Thx for the help, i'll try what you suggested, i want to see if I can ge tit working that way.

However I fixed it, I remember in my redhat 6.1 days the "pump" command, i checked and debian had it and it was installed so i ran

pump -i eth0 -h icarus and it gave me a shiny new IP address (that is differnet every time i connect to aol and run that command) and it has internet access, no messing with resolv.conf or routing tables and what not.

Thank god for pump, I may not like windows but it just saved my ass. Now debian woody is on it's way to sid (love that name, like sid vicious).
