Sharing as in... what? If you mean getting access to files on that computer, the whole point of linux is to allow multi-user access. Set up telnet/ssh and you should be able to log into that box without major problems [do secure it well enough so your network router doesn't become some skid's whore]. Or, for only file access, ftp would do it.
If there's something else you had in mind... please be a little bit more specific.

I think he needs to use squid because he wants to set up the RH box as an internet sharing device, but I might be wrong.

I have a small network of three computer, one has window 2000 pro, the 2nd has redhat 7.2 and the third one has a dual boot with window 2000 pro and redhat 9.0. The pc that has the dual boot is the one that i use as the router to share the internet, files,etc. But i like the way linux runs is a more of a smood system to me, what i want to do is share the network: internet, files through redhat 9.0............ Can anyone help

Use Samba for the file/print sharing. For interent, you need to enable IP masquerading and setup your route tables. Do a google search to learn more. You can also try at : http://www.linuxdoc.org
