WinModem Solution?


Could someone tell me if this would work?

I have a crappy winmodem which i'm sure would work in linux but i don't know how.

Soooo, would this work well? If i had a PC running XP with the modem (56k - i know ) and sharing the net connection through over a network and then my linux machine would be able to connect to the internet through the XP machine?

Cheer for any help

I have set it all up but i cannot connect to internet through mozilla, i have set it up to connect through the proxy (being the xp machine)

Any ideas what's wrong? Anything i might have missed?

Cheers
