Nope SP1a shouldnt break ICS. I would just check the LAN ip address on the XP machine and make sure the Workgroups are the same. And XP's subnet is 255.255.255.0 and pointing to 192.168.0.1 or whatever the ip is for the 2k PC. I would put the XP as the one with ICS. It maybe easier.

There is no firewall enabled on both PC's at the moment so that i can try to get ICS working, my WINXP pro PC doesn't have a modem so i can't use ICS through the WINXP pro PC :(
