RedHat 9 dhcp or static?

I've just installed RedHat 9 on the computer.
I've got two nics. eth0 is connected to The Net by DHCP and it's working just fine
eth1 is connected to my XBOX with a x:ed tp-cable. (physically connected, that is. It's not working...)
And the XBOX need connection to internet as well...newsfeed and xbox-live....

I also want to remove the xbox and connect a laptop occasionly.

I enabled the firewall-iptable when asked during install...

So, where do I start and how? :)

Hmm... The strange thing is that when i follow the guide at:

I get an Ip from the dhcpd
I can ping the Xbox
but i cannot ftp to it
I can ftp to the linuxbox but it hangs before the dirs begins to list

Any ideas?

oh, bthw.. i've tried to shut down the lookit service, but it's the same


This is the output of my /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases

lease {
starts 0 2003/12/14 15:33:06;
ends 0 2003/12/14 21:33:06;
tstp 0 2003/12/14 21:33:06;
binding state active;
next binding state free;
hardware ethernet 00:50:f2:db:15:b8;
uid "\001\000P\362\333\025\270";

This is the output of /etc/dhcpd.conf

I did something similar. However I took the easy way out and used software. If you are interested check out. This program is easy to install and worked instantly.
