    Simpler connection sharing?


    Hello.

    I'm somewhat new to Linux, and I want to set one of my wireless enabled laptops up to share an internet connection with my other PCs which lack wireless. I found directions at HowtoForge. (I'd share the link but I need at least 15 posts. Third from the top when you search 'internet connection sharing linux' on Google)

    Only, all that is a bit overwhelming to remember. Sure, I'll suck it up and go through the steps and do it once, but if I move my computer will I have to do all that again if say, I wanted to wirelessly access my friend's router over at his place?

    If I have to redo it each and everytime, is there a simpler way to do this? Has anyone coded a utility that I can compile equivalent to Windows XP's network wizard? (Assuming I'd have to redo all those steps)

    Additional information: I use Damn Small Linux and Puppy Linux on it.

    Thanks.
