1) I have computer #1 with a modem (V56);
2) I have computer #2 with a modem and an Ethernet card;
3) Computer #2 is connected to the Internet through the Ethernet port

Question: Is it possible for computer #1 to dial into computer #2, and access the Internet through ICS, or something similar? If yes, what software is needed for it, and how do I configure it?

it might be possible but I am sure it would be quite troublesome...Any particular reason why you are trying this if i may ask?

This is to allow for a temporary access to the Internet of a computer #1, which only has a modem.
I suspected it might be either troublesome or just outright impossible - at least with common tools...
To the best of my knowledge, it is possible to connect two computers together directly via 56K modems by using MS Windows Telephony, setting up Comp #2 as a Dial-Up Server, and using Terminal program for file transfer...

I do not know though if there is a way to "bind" a dial-up connection to an Ethernet card on Comp #2, to allow for an Internet access... Basically, I need to know if Comp #2 can be set up as a sudo "dial-up isp" for Comp # 1.

Yeah. A hyperterminal is possible between two machines but if these machines are at the same location then getting a Network Card would be much easier rather than setting tis up.
A 2003 machine could have allowed us to do that as a Dial Up VPN Server but XP is quite limited when it comes to acting as a Server for obvious reasons..:) Oh I am assuming both are XP here. You can try finding some third party VPN Software still I seriously doubt that you wil be able to achieve it 'easily'.

I guess there is no solution to the problem in the way that I wanted, so I am giving points for trying :o)
