microsoft internet connection sharing

I have a small wireless network setup, and I live in a rural area so we cannot have high speed, so I use my dial-up connection then microsoft internet connection sharing to link my secondary computer(running both ms and red hat)to the internet but I was wondering if there was anyway to change the network settings in red hat to work with ms ics. any thoughts?

I haven't used ICS in ages, but I think it just runs a DHCP server on the machine sharing the connection. Just set your Linux boxz to get its IP setting via DHCP and you should be OK.
