the Internet connection sharing wizard on both computers?

When you say that the second computer is connected via ethernet, connected to what - do you have a router, or a hub?

What exactly do you mean by a 'small office connection'?

Do you disable the firewall when starting the netwokring process?

Have you set up any shares?
