i am certain i had the right cards selected
Eth2 (my wireless) is my rout to the internet and thats the one i chose 
for my internet connection
Eth1 (my LAN) is the one connected to the other computer. Both computers 
can ping each other.

But every time i go to start the firewall, firestarter stops and tells 
me that ETH1 is not ready. And thats with or without the other computer
