I have a problem I believe can be solved, but I'm looking for advice.

I want to network these two machines, with only one online dialup
connection, i.e., networked to where one can serve the internet to the
other. Both machines have Cat 5 cable connectors (comm card in the PC), and
I have a crossover cable. What I'd like to do is serve the PC from the Mac
to where I access the internet from the PC,  D/L and install software.

Mainly, I want to D/L the latest RuntimeRevolution beta for Windows, and try
it on the PC without having to disconnect, switch phone cables, redial, etc.
I know I'll have to re-set up the PC in particular. I'm just not sure of the
correct procedure.


1) Mac G4, 350mHz, 500mb RAM, OS 9.2.1

2) Compaq Presario 7360, 500mHz, 256mb RAM, Windows XP Pro

How do I do it?

Many thanks in advance,
Ken N.
