[ale] BellSouth DSL and Windows "Internet Sharing"...

Yes, From what I see you want the windows computer (connected to the internet) to
give the linux box access to the internet through the network. I have this windows
is running as the connected machine and linux gets access from it. Just add the ip
address of the nic connected to the windows machine in the file you have for
nameserver. nameserver=windowsboxip. I think this file is the /etc/hosts file.

let me know if this worked or is what you wanted
