Sharing Internet connection (Suse and WinXP)

ello friends around the world! I am writing from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I have a computer running Linux Suse 10 which is connected to a Linksys router. This computer has 2 ethernet cards. One for the connection with the router and one to connect the computer which has Win XP.

The computer with Suse, which is connected directly to the Linksys -, has Internet access but the second computer hasn't.

I would like to access the Internet from the computer with Windows XP. I could do that with windows XP and also from Mandriva but -until now- I can't do it with Suse 10.

I am sure I am missing a couple of configuration things but I fell really frustrated because I can't make it work.

Any help will be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

In general (since I don't have SUSE), you need to enable NAT/Port Forwarding on the Suse Box and then set the Suse box as the gateway for XP. Does SUSE use KDE? If so, you should be able to use guidedog to help you set this up...

Just curious, is there any particular reason you don't just plug the XP box into the router (are all the ports currently in use)? That's what it's for...
