If you are using windows XP here's what to do:

On the non-server computer right click the network connection, and on TCP/IP properties, set the default gateway and preferred DNS server to the IP of the server computer. On the server computer right click your internet connection, click the networking tab, and tick the sharing option there.

If it's not XP you have, it may be similar, but I have no experience of networking anything but XP.

Hope it helps. :D

PS: If you're using AOL give up now. :P
