Apparently it _is_ possible to share the internet over the same ethernet cable. So my iBook is currently functioning as both the gateway to the modem (providing internet to a pc), and as a computer itself, retaining internet abilities~

Come to think of it, of course it would work. There'd be no need to have two separate physical interfaces.

Why? Insight went and did a network upgrade of some sort. Which caused all netgear routers to fail when grabbing an IP from the network. So my netgear router is currently useless.

Now, the question is, can I share internet with my PC as well? Over one physical wire, mind. And turn that into a router?

Append:
The setup goes as follows:
Modem => normal hub port => normal hub ports to { iBook, PC }
I kept the PC disconnected while I grabbed an IP address on my iBook, then enabled sharing, and plugged the PC back in. And it all worked~ =^.^=

Question:
What do you do when your computer has a bad disk block? Disk Utility.app returns the lovely:
Invalid sibling link

and promptly dies. Single user mode + fsck tells me that there's an I/O error on the disk, and then dies.

TechTool Pro tells me that I have a bad block.

Is the only way to fix this to back up stuff, format the disk with 0's, and assume that the system will write that bad block out of the safe-to-write-to-locations?
