yes you can,


run the internet connection sharing wizard on your xp laptop and it will use the usb cable modem as your internet interface and share on the network card,


connect a crossover (patch) cable from your network card in the laptop to your pc, and on the pc enable dhcp on your eth0 network card


to enable dhcp open a terminal and as root type



then follow the guide


if you cant get that to work click on the redhat/system tools/internet configuration wizard


good luck !
