NIC on Internet = ICS enabled
NIC on LAN = No special settings (that you can see)
XBOX = DHCP client (get ip addy automatically)
this should work unless you have a old version of windows (98? perhaps 98SE) which does not run a DHCP server with ICS enabled.
You should really look into a proper firewall / nat solution. The hardware ones are inexspensive nowadays.
If you want a real slick setup on the cheap get a older pc (say p90 w/32megs of ram miniumum) and run smoothwall ( www.smoothwall.org ) It is a fully featured free firewall. Its a linux distribution that is VERY easy to use. All you need is a coupld network cards, a 1gig hdd, and a CDROM to borrow just for installation. It has a great web interface and supports VPN, Logging, port range forwards and lots of other slick features.
