All you need to do is set the network card to obtaion an ip address automatically.
then go to your dial up connection and right click and go to properties, in the advance tab this will have an option for Internet connection sharing tick this and this will configure the main machine

on the other machine you just need to make sure its network card is set to pick up an ip address automatically
start > control panel > network connections > right click LAN > properties > tcp/ip properties
and you will see it in there

hope this helps
