Sharing internet with windows

I just installed Mandrake 10 on my Windows XP machine as a dual boot.


One big problem though, I have a home network and this machine provides the Internet access. I was using Internet connection sharing on Windows XP to the other computers on the network using DHCP. I installed Mandrake 10, ran the Internet connection sharing wizard (or is it Daemon in Linux?) and now the other computers are getting assigned IP numbers by the Linux install, but no Internet.

Ping does see Internet Machine, but cannot ping Internet locations.

The Internet is working on this machine.

I am running two Ethernet cards; ETH0 is connected to cable modem, ETH1 is connected to internet.

The network is Windows XP Pro and Linux. There are two other machines, both also dual boot Linux and Windows XP.

The firewall is disabled completely to avoid any possible issues, I will set it back up once network is working correctly.

I have not been able to find any info anywhere on what the issue may be. Answers would be appreciated, and links to where details could be found also very appreciated.

I am trying to learn more about Linux and possible move away from Windows, just many issues to resolve. First fix Internet, then WINE...... But that is another story for another day.
