PC1:
WAN NIC is configured properly (that's how i am able to post this message right now). It is also being shared.
LAN NIC is configured properly too (I think). windows doesn't let me view the TCP/IP settings if i am sharing a connection.

PC2:
Is able to figure out that it needs to obtain an IP from 192.168.0.1... and it does so. I am able to share files on a LAN between PC1 and PC2.. but when i try to ping an outside site on PC2 I don't get anything back.

The first thing that i would check on PC2 is that he DNS is configured correctly, this is sometimes a small human error which i have done myself before, also wondering what version of windows you are using? windows XP has an option to allow certain computers to share the connection, this also might be stopping PC2 IP from sharing your connection.
i would also make sure that you have allowed PC2 to gain access through PC1 firewall if you have one enabled

hope this helps
