I am brand new to the world of Linux, and I cannot call myself a power user of WinXP either . Keeping that in mind, plese help me out of the following.

I have a WinXP laptop that connects to the inernet via wireless lan. I have recently made a linux box out of a slightly old PC. Now I have only one way to connet to the internet, i.e. wireless lan. I have a Wlan in my laptop and an ethernet card in the linux desktop.

So can anyone help me out by telling me how to share the internet that is being recieved by my laptop to the linux box.
