    It' very easy... I'm assuming that you are using Leopard
    FIRST:
    Go to Sharing in the System Preference and set the internet sharing From and to settings and make sure you turn it ON

    Second:
    go to the network where there's internet...
    * write down the IP, Subnet mask...

    Third:
    Go to the other network you want to share to...
    in configure choose manually then put this IP address 10.0.0.1

    NOTE: if the first network address has the same 10.0.0.X then put 192.168.1.1

    Forth and last:
    Go to the Macbook Pro network preference and set configure to manually then put these setting:

    in IP: 10.0.0.2
    in Subnet Mask: Subnet Mask you wrote down
    in Router: 10.0.0.1

    That's it...
    I hope it works (^_^)
