I have a wireless card up an running and I connect to internet through it.
I also have an ethernet card (e1000) which is set up properly.
Now I want to connect another PC to my linux box so it can use the
internet connection.

1- Sofware: How do I bridge these two interfaces ? What packages I need ?


So i just need to issue this command or it needs a little bit of tweaking ?

2- Hardware: I need a cross cable, right ?

A Cat5 crossover, or better yet, 2 Cat5 cables and an El Cheapo
unmanaged switch.  $30, and your friends can join in when they come over.

I will stick to one cable, 'cos I don't want get kicked out of network by admin because of my friends file-sharing softwares :)

Thanks for the help
