Redhat and Mandrake


If I install Redhat on my laptop will I be able to share an internet connection with my Desktop running Mandrake?

More importantly, can I do it with out taking 10 hours to setup?

that depends on the speed of the laptop

it takes about 30 minute or so to install RedHat,

the internet connection should be there when you reboot after the installation, if you have dhcp

the required firewall script should not take more than a couple of minutes to do

Code:
depmod -a
modprobe ipt_MASQUERADE
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
this gives you no firewall however
if you want to look into setting up a firewall with ip masquerade you can get scripts here
