    What are you trying to accomplish? File sharing? If so, use DAVE. Otherwise, how is your network laid out? I've got both PCs and Macs on my network. I run my cable modem into a Netgear router, and then have configured the router to hand out DHCP addresses. Configure all of the computers for TCP/IP with DHCP, and I'm all set.

    If you're using the Windows Internet Sharing stuff, sorry, that's Windows only. It won't work with your mac.

    Well, I'm not an expert in this matter at all, but since no one else has stepped up, I'll try.
    There is a way to do it using OS X and Windows .
    You could also use software such as DAVE .
    Jaguar is supposed to make this type of thing really easy, so let's keep our fingers crossed. I used a shareware version of DAVE for like 30 days and it worked great here at my home where I have 2 PC's and my G4 PowerMac.
    You may want to reference Apple's support section for more help.
    [edit] I guess I'm the second person to step up...
