As far as I know, not knowing much, doesn't the win XP box which  
connects to the net do all the DHCP and local DNS when XP's internet  
connection sharing is turned on? Which it is. It's at,  
which netstat is correctly reporting as the default gateway...

So is it a case of working out how to get XP to update things?
