I've got my PCs seeing each other now. How do I get the 2nd PC to
see the internet on the first PC?

Go into Yast>Security and Users>Firewall

Select the correct interfaces for internal (the one connected to your 2nd machine) and external (the internet connection)
Choose "forward traffic and do masquerading"

complete the config

On the 2nd machine, set the 'default gateway' to be the 1st machine, and the DNS to whatever your ISP supplies.

That should do it!
