(solved at last!)
I can't get Internet connection sharing to work, it used to, but now it doesn't. I uninstalled all the adapters and went into add/remove and unistalled and reinstalled communicatios.
I have all the options in communications selected.
Here is whats installed in the network properties.
Network Properties

Client for Microsoft Windows
Dial-up adapter
ICS
NDIS 1394 Net Adapter
Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter

protocol
Internet Connection Sharing (protocol)-> Dial-up adapter
Internet Connection Sharing (protocol)->Internet Connection Sharing
Internet Connection Sharing (protocol)->NDIS 1394 Net Adapter
Internet Connection Sharing (protocol)->Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter

NetBEUI->Dial-up adapter
NetBEUI->Internet Connection Sharing
NetBEUI->Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet

TCP/IP (home))->Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet
(198.162.255.1 255.255.255.0 is the IP settingsfor host, 198.162.255.2 255.255.255.0 for client)

TCP/IP(shared)->Dial-up adapter
TCP/IP->Internet Connection Sharing
TCP/IP)->NDIS 1394 Net Adapter
File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks

Should I enable DNS somewhere? I don't know where I would do that, my ethernet adapter, or the Net adapter. I am still confused on which is which. I ran the wizared, and chose the Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet as the adapter that goes to the internet and the NDIS1394 as Network adapter. I am still learning on this networking thing. I looked in winipfcg. The settings found are thus....

HOST Info

DNS SERVER 216.193.128.11 which is correct for my ISP
Node type - broadcast
IP Proxy enabled

Ethernet Info

ICS Share adapter
Adapter address 00-E0-18-CB-54-64
IP address 192.168.255.1
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0

PPP adapter Info
44-45-53-54-00-00
IP address 216.193.160.100
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway 216.193.160.100
DHCP server 255.255.255.255

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!!!!!

After all the hair pulling, it was as simple as telling the client PC to automatically find the IP. :D

You are a lifesaver!
