Unhappy fedora2, crossover cable to a 200 machine

Can anyone assist me, I currently have a W2k machine connected to the INTERNET via wireless card and fedora 2 machine with an on board eth0. The card I purchased is not supported in Linux, so I thought that I could connect it with a crossover cable. I have disabled the firewall on the linux machine, but cannot figure out why I can't ping the 2000 box.

Any help would be great.

You most likely need to set up a routing table. Do a 'man route' to check out the options, and do some searches for a howto on route. You need to open up traffic between the two interfaces you have setup. HTH

PS I know it sounds a bit snobbish to say RTFM, but I'm not that proficient enough to tell someone how to use the route command off the top of my head.
