Share files and internet connection between 10.4 and XP
Authored by: CoolerQ on Oct 10, '05 09:19:59AM

This seems entirely unnecessary. When you start Internet Sharing on your mac, your mac will launch a DHCP server. Then the rest of your computers (XP or not) will use DHCP and get an IP address in the range that internet sharing is offering. You shouldn't have to touch the network settings on your mac.

I agree. I've done this many times without having to do what the hint suggests.

Infact the hint seems like it is trying to go AGAINST DHCP....

Doesn't make sense to me at all...
