Done as described.... however, there are a couple of things in the bottom
part of what you sent that I'm not sure I understand.  What do you think
this means:

IMPORTANT: You should not use this feature on a computer running
>DNS server or
>DHCP server or a Windows domain controller.

and

>You cannot modify the default network configuration after enabling
>ICS. This
>includes items such as the range of private IP addresses that are

>(DHCP allocator), enabling or disabling DNS, configuring a range
>of public IP
>addresses, or configuring inbound mappings.

>SUMMARY
>With the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) feature of network and dial-up
>connections, you can use Windows to connect your home network or
>small office
>network to the Internet. For example, you may have a home network
>that connects
>to the Internet by using a dial-up connection. By enabling ICS on
>the computer
>that uses the dial-up connection, you are providing network
>address translation,
>addressing, and name resolution services for all computers on your
>home network.
>MORE INFORMATION
>To enable ICS on a network connection:
>  1.. In Control Panel, double-click Network and Dial-Up Connections.
>  2.. Right-click the connection you want to share, and then click
>Properties.
>  3.. Click the Sharing tab, and then click to select the Enable Internet
>Connection Sharing for this connection check box.
>  4.. If the connection you are sharing is a Dial-up connection
>and you want the
>connection to dial automatically when another computer on your home network
>attempts to use external resources, click to select the Enable
>on-demand dialing
>check box.
>NOTE: To enable ICS in Windows, you must have administrative rights.
>
>IMPORTANT: You should not use this feature on a computer running
>DNS server or
>DHCP server or a Windows domain controller. When you enable ICS,
>the network
>adapter connected to the home or small office network is given a
>new static IP
>address configuration. Existing TCP/IP connections on the CS
>computer are lost
>and need to be re-established.
>Configuration and Usage Issues
>The ICS feature is intended for use in a small office or home
>office in which
>the network configuration and the Internet connection are managed by the
>Windows-based computer on which the shared connection resides. It
>is assumed
>that on its network, this computer is the only Internet
>connection, is the only
>gateway to the Internet, and that it sets up all internal network
>addresses.

>You cannot modify the default network configuration after enabling
>ICS. This
>includes items such as the range of private IP addresses that are
>handed out
>(DHCP allocator), enabling or disabling DNS, configuring a range
>of public IP
>addresses, or configuring inbound mappings.

>If your home office users need to gain access to a corporate
>network that is
>connected to the Internet by a tunnel server from a ICS network,
>they need to
>create a virtual private network (VPN) connection to tunnel from
>the computer on
>the ICS network to the corporate tunnel server on the Internet. The VPN
>connection is authenticated and secure, and creating the tunneled
>connection
>allocates proper IP addresses, DNS server addresses, and WINS
>server addresses
>for the corporate network.
