How does the network get internet? In my experience with ADSL, that the whole network automatically shares the net. If you have dial-up on individual machines then that's different, but I'm not sure how well sharing a dial-up connection would work (its so painfully slow with just one PC connected!) From memory its pretty easy to share internet with other PCs in the same Workgroup (and on the same LAN) just using XP - no proxy required.

[edit] Sorry I didn't read your question properly, I'm not 100% sure how you can share internet with someone who connects through a proxy, but I'm sure it can be done! I think you should be able to do it through XP.
