After reading your problem, as an experiment, I tried using a Red Hat 8
machine on LAN to connect to the internet through a Win XP machine that was
used as a default gateway. The XP used a shared dialup connection. On the
linux side I used a fixed IP address with the usual subnet mask and the
default gateway was set to the XP's ip address. I was able to surf the net
using the mozilla browser in the linux machine.
