Basically the same problem.

I have a laptop that I want to share a Dial-up connection with my Desktop running Win2kpro. I am running Linux Redhat 9, and am also a complete newbie.

There are lots of threads already on the forum about this. Bassically you will need to:
1) Enable ip forwarding
2) Set up a masquerading rule in iptables
3) Set the gateways of your windows boxes to the linux box ip.

There is a pretty good guide here:
