Default Linux MS Peer to Peer

I have Windows XP on one machine with a Linksys wireless usb adaptor and Fedora Linux on a second machine.

I have both machines connected with a crossover cable and have configured them:

Machine 1 Machine 2
Subnet Mask

I would like to be able to acces the internet on the linux machine, but have been unable.

If i bridge the network card and the wiress connection of the MS machine I am unable to configue the linux IP as listed above and if i dont bridge my wireless connection to the internet is knocked out.

Is it possible to what i want to do?

Am i going about this all wrong?

The router address needs to be the same on both of them, and i think the deafult address for linksys is, so heres how I would do it:

Machine 1:
Subnet Mask:

Machine 2:
Subnet Mask:
