Can't connect to Internet through another machine

I'm trying to access the Internet on a machine with Win 2000 Server on it
FROM a machine with XP, connected with a cross-over cable.
I had this working about 3 years ago but forgot what I did to make it work.
I can view folders on the Win 2000 machine from XP machine.
Any ideas?  thanks

thanks . .
I checked off the option below and it worked. But is there a
security risk with this option?

Local area connection (cable modem) properties:

"Allow other network users to connect through this
computers Internet connection."   << checked
