    I guess you got a problem getting the Internet working.
    Could be Harware issue, or Sofware settings.
    But as it is not about these Forums, im moving this to SoftwareWorld.
    Im guessing this more about XP's Internet settings and how the
    the ISDN modem is configured. Could be some Firewall blocking traffic, or something else.

    I dont know much about ISDN's or how to connect via another PC,
    as sharing the the internet connection on 1 PC with other,
    but I would first try get the settings in the main PC right.
    Install latest drivers for the modem, check the XP that it regognize the modem
    as it is suppose to, check the settings on BIOS, dont share IRQ's etc.

    When that PC would be connected to the Net and working,
    I would then try to share that connection with another PC.
    Maybe use the Network-Wizards on XP to guide through the settings,
    but keep in mind those wizards dont always do what they suppose to.

    Spoiler: Show

    Try this link.

    It's for Windows 2000, but it should apply to XP too.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
