Do you have a desktop installed on FC5? There must be some item in the control center that allows you to share the internet connection.

Yes I have xwindows running... If there is some tool in FC5 I don't know about it.

Do you have Gnome or KDE installed?

I don't know exactly where this is in Gnome, but there must be something like a control center or system settings where you can configure the connection sharing. Just browse a little bit through your menu.

I've looked through the desktop options through Gnome and have come up with nothing... And I've spent a lot of time searching.

Is it possible KDE desktop offers tools that Gnome's desktop doesn't all through the default FC5 installation?

Just to let you know... I am new to Linux. I've had very little training and I just want to use it for the sake of learning.

Also could there be a yum install/update that your aware of? And should I disable SE Linux... I've read countless times that this feature doesn't work right and causes at the very least Internet Application problems? Though I haven't ran into any problems with SE, I'll take experienced users advice.

I don't think so.

If you ask for my opinion: yes, disable it. It causes too much problems...

OK, so if I havent overlooked the tool that shares my NIC through Gnome and there's no tool in KDE then I guess there's no built in tool in FC5 that shares internet connections.

Is there anyway I could do it through the command line?

Is there a yum update or package download I could use to help me share my connection?

I just don't know what to do next.

You could install a firewall like Shorewall. It is possible to configure internet connection sharing with it.
Run
Code:
yum search shorewall
to see if there's a FC5 package for it. If not, you have to install the sources.
