Sharing Internet from an Internal ASDL Modem

I currently reside in Italy, and the rage here is the internal ASDL modem that directly connects to the phone jack in the wall without any router or ADSL box.  Basically, I would like to share the internet.

Here's the setup:

XP PC has internal ASDL modem which connects directly to phone jack in wall with a phone wire, not network.

98 Laptop wants internet.

Both computers have a network card installed.

I have a hub.

I get lights from both the laptop and the PC when I connect them to the hub, but I have no clue how to "transfer" the internet from the ASDL modem inside the computer to the network card inside the PC so that I can connect it to the hub.  If that's the way to do it.

Any suggestions?

Since you don't have a router, you will need two NIC's in the machine that conects directly with the asdl line, and then see here

When you say two NICs do you include the ASDL modem inside the computer?  If not, I do not understand why you need two.  I followed the directions on those webpages, but to no avail.  I am beginning to think that the hub is not functioning correctly.  I have connected the hub to the NIC in the machine which is directly connected to the asdl line and then stretched another cord from the hub to the win98 laptop.  I get a light for that connection, but no light for the connection between the hub and the XP box which is directly connected to the asdl line.

this is possible, but make sure you are not using a crossover cable to connect to the hub
crossover cables connect two machines directly (no hub) and straight thru cat 5 connects machines to hubs
