    Linux Help needed

    I get my internet connection via anoter computer on a 2 computer network (gateway). Both computers are currently using Windows Me so there is no problem in using the internet from either. I am thinking of installing Linux SuSe on the second computer (the one which gets it's internet from the other one). I know that linux is not able to connect nor communicate to windows.

    Would i still be able to access the internet via the linux computer?if so what software would i need to do so?

    Which unix distribution would be able to achieve this?

    i am also thinking of addig a linux category to my web site so if you have any reccomendations as to what should go into that cetegory than don't hesitate to prompt me..

    Thanks for all your help.

    are you sure you included <stdio.h>?
    that usually solves the problem

    This has absolutely nothing to do with C Programming and Linux can connect to and communicate with Windows just fine.

    If you have one of the Windows machines setup with ICS or NAT then just set the Linux machine to obtain an IP address through DHCP and everything will be automatically assigned to you and you'll be ready to go.
