(1) Setup the computer with the modem in it as a Gateway, using NAT (Network Address Translation)

(2) Configure the second computer to default all it's unknown packets to the IP address of the Gateway box; Populate this box with the DNS details of the ISP server you connect to!

That's it!

I also have the need to use the modem on a one machine, but I dont need it to access the internet. I need the machine with the modem to share the modem so the other mashine can use it for what ever purpose.
