Sharing an internet connection(HELP!!!)

Ok heres the deal, I am quite the newbie at linux, but otherwise, there is not a lot I cannot do with win2k/XP box. I am running red hat 7.0 on a dual boot with win 2000. I am sharing an ADSL connection with my roomie. Instead of using a full router(like an idiot) I am proxied through my roomie, who is on winXP. Everything works fine in win 2k. But what I cannot figure out is how to get linux to proxy through him. My netcard is already properly configured, and we are talking to eachother through a linksys 10/100 full duplex switch(not a hub). Any pointers would be appreciated.
