Windows XP Pro connect to two networks..

we wish to connect a Windows XP Pro workstation to two networks. Network 1 is wireless Network 2 is Ethernet.

We can NOT use a hardware Router.

We need to enable routing under windows XP between both networks. We did pickup a regisrty hack for windows XP which should enable a cut down version of routing BUT this was very unreliable at best but pretty much it did not work.

We need the workstation to correctl pull internet access from the wireless connection.

Alternatively if we upgraded to VISTA does this have better support?

Windows' built-in Internet Connection Sharing should do the trick, with the downside being that it's hard to pick your own internal IP addressing scheme.
