Default Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing service not working

not really where to post this question but i think i put it here for now

okay this is wat happened i have networked 2 computers with a crossover cable and internet shared them. it worked fine until now.

when i start up the comps the network starts and stuff, but on the xp (comp with internet) starts up it says windows firewall down stuff and says start service and i say yes but it doesnt i just leave it and go on the net and the other comp win. 95 cannot go on the net.

so i go manually and enable it in the admin tools and i discover the firwall service it really the 'Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)' so i try enabling it but no it wont work.

some site said something with severice pack 2 and another said it was to do with it conflicting with NAT or something

please give me some advice

the firewall must be OFF when your networking. Otherwise, the firewall will think its a hacking attempt and block the other pc.
