I have found the easiest way to do this is to use IP masquerading, and use
a non-internet subnet (I tend to like 10.0.0.0). Set up your linux box with
the modem, assign it an IP something like 10.0.0.1 and set up IP masq, then
use it as a gateway for the rest of you windoze machine...
I wont go into detail here how to do it, but the IP Masq (mini-)HOWTO is
very easy to follow... I had it up and running in about 30 mins (not
including recompiling IP Masq support into the kernel
Alternatively you could use a proxy server like squid, but IMHO IP Masq is
much sexier, and lets you do a lot more stuff over your network...
Hope that helps,
