For some odd reason connection sharing doesn't seem to be working when I start up in Safe Mode (chosing 'with networking' on the menu that's brought up when I hold F8.) I have my USB cable modem hooked in, and it's working. But for some reason I can't open my network, and my other PC won't get on the 'net through the shared connection (which is still listed as shared.)

It works in normal mode, but due to video card issues (that I posted here before,. but never got any working solution to other then reformat and start all over) I can't run my PC in anything but safe mode and not have it freeze up.

so you have xp and you are using ICS, to share an internet connection ?

I think thr BIG question is not why does it not work in safe mode , but , why does it not work in protected mode ( normall xp desktop) ?

I need to know your setup, is the other pc xp also ? how are they all connected ?
you have cable ?
have you considered getting a router...routers are really cheap now and the pc's would connect to the net independemtly of each other
