windows-linux network, two comps
anyway, people told me I need to get a crossover cable if I want to connect the two computers with their network cards.. so I bought it and windows could recognize the network but says "limited / no connectivity" and the network card's light is green, while on the old comp the light is yellow.
now im just asking do I have to change something in the fedora comp or install the network there somehow? remember I can only run commands I dont have xserver..
oh and btw, im connected to the internet with a cable modem on this windows machine, when ill have network the fedora machine will have internet too, right? or do I need to setup that too?
please help me!

so, how are you using the cross over cable?
If you want to share the internet connection...
I donot know if the above tutorial works with Linux machine as client,but I would try to find out more(I guess all you have to do on the client is to configure the network settings with ifconfig)
You will need to set a static IP on the linux box or if you wish set it up as a DHCP server. In this case you will not need to run the Windows network wizard but it takes a bit more determination and time. If you want to share the internet connection you will need to enable this in Windows first.
