ok, how about you try downloading the most recent version of knoppix. that is a distro of linux that boots froma cd and loads right up. It should automatically detect your network card and the interface will allow us to figure out the status of your network.

also please post the text you get from:
ipconfiig /all
on your XP machine.

EDIT
sorry i missed a page of posts, this step may not be needed.

I am surpried that during the same time period someone else was having the same problem.

I did ICS on XP
It gave the connection the IP address of 192.168.0.1 with the subnet mask as 255.255.255.0
I went to the Linux box and made 192.168.0.1 the gateway and set the IP address to 192.168.0.xx then:
# ifconfig eth0 up
and that worked like a charm for me!

Thanks to everyone's help.

Have you simply tried hooking the linux box directly up to your internet connection? Just to varify it works.

it will fail if there isn't a proper link
take the network cable you have to a computer store and ask them if it is a crossover cable.
if it isn't then buy a crossover cable.

I'm quite sure the cable is fine, and we can now rule out the Network card, since I just gave 'im one that was certainly compatible with Linux.

Are you able to assign static ip addresses and at least ping from one machine to the other.
good luck.
