    Smile LAN problems, linux to windows to internet

    It has been awhile for me and I am now setting up my new Slackware-13.1 box.
    Problem: Can't get my linux box to connect to the internet via dialup on my windows
    Here is my set up:
    Internet - WindowsXP - Router - Linux
    As modems are mostly winmodems now, and HSF and HCF modems won't work with the new 2.6. kernels, I have to connect to the internet via dialup on my windows machine.
    Windows machine #1 IP = Static address - dialup machine
    Windows machine #2 IP = static address
    Linux machine IP = static address - my new born, 1 week old.
    Router = Linksys IP = my gateway
    No other settings. that I can think of right now.
    I can bring up the connection to the internet from both windows machines.
    I have Samba working, vsftpd working. on my linux machine and can access each other fine, just can't seem to get on the internet from the linux machine.
    I am guessing someone has had this problem before and am sure the answer is here. I haven't been around much sense 04-07-2008.
    Anyway, would someone point me to the right place? I can see I need to come here more often and do some reading.
