Hey Ric,

Assuming you have the two machines networked, one solution would be to run a FTP server on the Linux box. Then the Mac could connect using its FTP client. If Mac OSX supports TCP/IP based printing, you could use a similiar setup for the printer.

For information on sharing a single internet connection, take a look at the IP-Masquerade HOWTO[1].
