Ok,  this is the problem so far: When I'm on WinXP, it works perfectly, both pc's have connexion, but when I'm on Ubuntu (the other PC works just XP) just this one have connexion, but I can access the XP computer, I mean, I can do ping good.

to do internet connection sharing (real name 'NAT') you'll need to either write an iptables script (=tricky) or use seomthing simple like firestarter - 'apt-get install firestarter' (=easy)
