sharing ADSL connexion

I've a desktop running WIN XP and a laptop running linux Fedora Core 1.

I want to share my ADSL connexion (USB modem) using a null modem ( cross cable) between the two PC's.

How can I do it easily?

Is it better to launch the modem from XP or from Linux?

If you were to connect the modem to the Windows box to share out the signal to your Linux notebook, that would be difficult at best.

Your best bet is to go to your local mom n' pop computer shop down the street and buy a Pentium 100 box with 64MB RAM and a 2GB hard drive for $50. Put two 3com 3c905s into it and make it a router and serve your Winblows box and Linux notebook.

thanls, but I ment: "only with a cross cable"

I did it between these two PC running on XP or 2000 and it worked perfectly.

I guess it's also possible between XP and linux....
