Has anyone successfully connected an XBOX classic via the mini ethernet port to share the Wireless connection?

I've read a few posts here and there about it but in my few attempts I haven't had much success.

So, if someone has a good instruction set they'd wish to share I would very much appreciate your feedback.

My Config:

Model Name: Mac mini
Model Identifier: Macmini1,1
Processor Name: Intel Core Duo
Processor Speed: 1.66 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 2 MB
Memory: 2 GB
Bus Speed: 667 MHz
Boot ROM Version: MM11.0055.B08

Leopard 10.5.2

Cheers,

Thanks, I found the answer... it's actually in the Sharing Prefs pane, in the internet pane within System Prefs. Then just check what port you want to share over (ethernet, firewire and airport (in my case), then click the Start button. Simple enough.

Did I tell you how awesome Macs are?
