    Just make sure you have TCP/IP and the latest version of OpenTransport for MAC. I have Windows, Linux, and MAC all sharing my cable modem.

    Just assign the MAC an address such as 192.168.0.2, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway the IP of the Linux box, and the DNS numbers from your ISP.

    I did it using speedguide's little manual located in the 'Sharing Cable' section. But you need two NICs in the 'server', one for the cable and one for the network, one NIC in teh client, and some good proxy software that will separate the two NICs and their IP's. Then just have the proxy server know which IP is your outside(cable) and then assign IP's like 92.0.0.x to your other client or have the proxy software do it. PS, there is a good manual at www.winproxy.com for winproxy that tells you everything about doing the entire process. You can download it in acrobat format
