It's probably something obvious but I can't figure it out.

Fiddling with th PnP settings is bios fixed the mouse problem, so now then nic and mouse work together, but it still won't connect.

Is there a step by step howto to do it, maybe i just missed something really oblious and if I did it step by step It would fix it.

It sounds like a routing problem. Can you pos tthe output of:
route -n
ifconfig

TIP: It is much easier to read if you put them in BB code blocks eg (without spaces in the tags):
[ CODE ]
OUTPUT OF COMMANDS
[ /CODE ]

I didn't think pinging was affected by route - not for something you are directly connected to.

ifconfig
Code:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:20:AF:B5:74:B6  
          inet addr:192.168.0.218  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
          Interrupt:10 Base address:0x230 

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
route -n
Code:

Although i have no idea what all this stuff you's guys are talking about, i do have this XP machine with a adsl connection ands a Linux machine that can use the connection.

But i already had the XP connected to 98 and when i installed RH9 it was already able to connect through the Xp machine.

So maybe it is a prob with XP. TO internet share thourgh XP u need Netbeui. There is a bit of stuffing around to get that so tell me if the XP machine has it.

Someone mentioned not using the XP firewall. I disagree. While I wouldn't use it for a business or to protect vital information it works fine for the average homeowner. It will stealth all your ports and not reply to icmp packets. It is not an application firewall but so what. Run norton anti-virus and use the XP firewall and you will be relatively safe. I can find no docs on how to crack it.

Before I can get the internet sharing to work I need to worry about getting the PCs to talk and as it is one can't even ping the other

Here is a stupid question. do you know that the cross over cable is in fact a cross over? I mean you know that your are not using a patch cable? There is a difference. I am trying to do this same thing between my slack box and my XP pc and I can see each pc on the network but I am still not able to surf the web on my slack box. but I can ping both of them day an night?

To add to the post above, if you have a crossover that is connected in both ends, the lights on the network-cards should be on.
I didn't understand if you could ping your linuxcomputer from your wife's?

im very sure u need Netbeiu on the XP machine to connect to the network.
Because u had 98 working seems to point at this. 98 has Netbeiu install by default, XP u have to manually install it.

Sorry but netbeui is not supported in XP Mr.Bill has dropped his failing network protocol. I can see both pc's on my network just fine with Samba. I can login to both of them and share files between them no problem. but for some reason there seem to be no real way to tell slackware to go to connect to the Internet? at least from what I have found. I know in redhat and mandrake it pretty much does it for you. But they also don't say what they did to get them to share the Internet?

Netbeui is supported, i just had to install it from the XP cd. In a network guide i used to setup my XP and 98 i had to install Netbeui so that they had the same protocol, and when i installed RH9 it could hook up to the net through the XP box straight away.

you will need to copy the following files from your XP CD on to your hard drive
#1) copy nbf.sys into the %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ directory
#2) copy netnbf.inf into the %SYSTEMROOT%\INF\ directory
