Hi all,

I recently made the switch from Win2k Pro to Slackware. I'm enjoying Linux pretty well, and had no problems installing it as a second OS on my PC. I am kinda lost on the networking deal though (and vi). When I boot, it finds a DHCP server (that's good) but my other PC (running Win2k Pro) can't see my computer or reach the internet (that's bad). THese things work when both PCs run Windows.

Here's my setups:

My comp (the one running Linux / Win2k Pro):
Two ethernet cards:
1 on the cable modem,
1 on the hub

Other comp (the one running Win2k Pro):
Connected to the hub via ethernet.

I don't know much about Networking (it's a miracle I got it to work in the first place) so I'm not sure if I should provide more info. If somebody knows how to get the other comp online, that'll be cool . Thanks in advance.
