How to share internet between 2 PCs ( Ubuntu - Vista )

Hi there,

Right so i had a router, And a total of 5 Pcs which 4 connected via ethernet to the router and one with a wireless, However my Reouter has been broken ( phisically ). Therefor i got my 5 old usb adsl modem out and installed it on the main pc which is running Ubuntu .. ( took me about an hour .. damn! ) Anyways Now, I really need to give access to internet to another PC and this is very cirtical ... Is there anyway i can share the Internet on PC 1 which is connected to internet via usb , via a ethernet connection to PC 2 running Windows vista ( boo .. i know! )

Thank you guys,
LVL 1

An easy way to share internet connection in case your Windows based computer will act as
a gateway would be to download and install free 3 users proxy server Proxy +
