yup, look up Internet connection sharing in the windows help file, or on google, that will tell you how to do, it is pretty quick and painless if I remember correctly.

Oh also make damn sure you run a good firewall on the computer you are using as a Router.

Yes its a remarkably simple procedure. What OS is on the computer you want to use as the router. Mine is windows 98 and sometimes ICS doesnt start, its not really a problem as a logoff and a log back on useually fixes the problem. If you want some help setting it up im sure I can post a step by step guide on how to set it up.

If you need a good free firewall the best one that I have experianced is Zone alarm.
