Co into network connections from the control panel and right click your connection, select properties, select the advanced tab and then place a tick in the bit that says 'allow other users...

Not on the connected pc open network connections and then use the windows connection wizard to make the connection.

now go to the main PC and again open network connections, select the two connection you see and right click and select bridge connections...

This should do it...
