"I would like to install linux on my pc and then use it as the main internet connection."

This should be easy enough. It sounds like you need to set up Internet connection sharing on the Linux machine. This is painless if you use something like Mandrake's 'DrakGW'.

"But the other pc will be running xp with sp2 will this cause a problem"

Not for the Internet connection sharing. Otherwise: I don't know, it depends on what you want to do.

ashdav: how in God's name were those links relevant?

Install Squid proxy server software to mandrake... that's good.
