Question Sharing an internet connection with a Linux client through a 2000 server gateway

I guess the subject kinda explains it all. I have a Windows 2000 Advanced Server acting as the internet gateway. I have a proxy server installed on this station as well. All of the (5) workstations connected to the network (via hub) are able to get their internet connection via this gateway....with the exception of the linux box (workstations are running Windows 98). Is it possible to get the internet connection to the Linux box through this gateway? If so, I'd appreciate any advice on how to do it.

Thanks much for your replies.

Yeah you should be able to do this and connect the Linux box and use the Windows box as the gateway.

# route add default gw ( IP of gateway machine )
Or if you have linuxconf installed, you can easily edit it there in the GUI.
