I have two computers, one being a server (NOTHING special) and my workstation. I only have one way of plugging them into the internet, since the only one which is turned on all the time will be the server.

How do I get the Ubuntu 11.10 Sever to connect to the internet using a USB adapter then share the internet though the ethernet.

Performance loss is acceptable.

Bother run 11.10 but the workstation is the normal version.

For the USB Adapater:

I had to have my server setup using wlan, I found this page to be the most helpful -> http://superuser.com/questions/269145/how-to-connect-to-wifi-on-ubuntu-server-10-10
