Hi, I'm just curious about this -- is it possible to have two or more machines networked together locally, then have one of the machines dial-in to an internet provider, and have the second machine access the internet through the first (the one that is dialed-up) machine?  How would you do this?

You need to set up a proxy server on the machine that is dailed out to the internet.  Microsoft has a proxy server available for free on their web site for NT, and if you go to TUCOWS and look under the modem-sharing section, you'll find lots of apps that do this for Win95/98.  I recommend WinGate, which works very well
