Well I've got as far as getting the Linux box logging in to my ISP via
PPP. Can run Netscape via a Win95 Xserver even, and Samba works too.
However, even though I've told my Win95 box that my Linux box is a
gateway, I can't access the web on the Win95 box (unless of course I
plug the modem into it directly, which spoils the point).
I do get some errors concering Proxy ARP in my message log:

I've been through the Masquerade and PPP HOWTOs with no luck, and even
scoured the dejanews comp.os.linux archive. If someone can help me with
suggesting where I'm fouling things up, I'd appreciate it. I'll even
update the FAQ!
