Sharing Internet with a WinXP Box

I have my Linux box Slackware 9.1, my brother has his WinXP. I have 2 network cards in my system, one if for my Cable modem connection and another one if for our LAN. I need to know how to determine what is what network card and setup the DHCPD server, so I may share the internet with him

1) configure both network cards with addresses in your local IP space
(e.g. XP: Netmask eth0: Netmask
eth1: Netmask

2) connect one to the internal network (i.e. your switch/hub)

3) try to ping both - the one responding is the internal one :-)
