That identical to my setup (well, XP as opposed to 98 but anyway..) its
just about the simplest setup you can have. But my question regarding DNS stoill
applies - you need to set a DNS server on the Windows box and the Windows box
cant get it from PPP as the PPP is running on the UNIX box. I had mine
staticly configured when I used dialup, these days I fun anamed on the
gateway box - but either way you need something there if you want to use names
on the windows box.

Your comment that the BSD box as an IP gateway abopve interests me - it
shouldnt need a gateway at all (where it gatewaying to ?). Take that
out and you might find it all "just works" maybe ?
