A little more information could be helpful.
What sort of internetconnection is it.
Mode, Adsl(usb or ethernet modem), Cable, T1, T3, Satellite,.....
When you say "drake 10" do you mean Mandrake 10.0?

So all u need to do is plug ur crossover cable into the NIC in each computer to set up ur winxp machine for networking read this easy to follow document http://www.dslwebserver.com/main/sb...-ip-win-xp.html
then all u need to do is assign the ip address of ur winxp machine as ur dns server and also as ur gateway in ur network device control of ur mandrake machine.
U can check the 2 machines `see` each other in a terminal window in linux
ping 192.168.0.1 (ur winxp)
at a command prompt window in xp
ping 192.168.0.2 (ur linux)



ps both machines will need to be using the same subnet mask of 255.255.255.0
