I've got 2 LAN Cards. LAN Connection 1 is having a peer to peer connection (cross cable connection) with other PC and LAN Connection 2 is having a DSL Line. I want to share my LAN Connection 2 with LAN Connection 1. So that other PC which is on Peer to Peer Network can share my DSL Service.

What are the possibilities in this situation?

You don't say what OS's are involved, but if the machine with the dsl connection is 98SE/w2k/XP then it has ICS (internet connection sharing built in)
there are also third party apps (like analogx, winproxy, etc) available
search google for  internet connection sharing, butas stated, 98SE/w2k/XP has it built in already

While enabling ICS connection over LAN #1, it asks me for the following confirmation

"When Internet Connection Sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set to use IP address 192.168.0.1. Your computer may lose connectivity with other computers on your network. If these other computers have static IP addresses, you should set them to obtain their IP addresses automatically. Are you sure you want to enable Internet Connection Sharing?

what should i don now?

choose yes, or OK
this is normal
the Lan interface wil be 192.168.0.1
for the clients
say yes
the default gateway (for the client(s)) will be 192.168.0.1
this is normal
when i used ICS this is what I used
Mach #1  (host, connected to the internet, computer #1 in your web page)
ip 192.168.0.1 (Lan #2 interface)
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
gateway blank
disable dns and wins

Mach #2 (computer#2 in your web page)
ip 192.168.0.2
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
 gateway 192.168.0.1
disable  wins
dns either the dns server ip provided by your isp or 192.168.0.1
