You know, the native ipchains stuff in 2.2 kernels is perfectly adequate
for that purpose. You put a second NIC in your Linux box, change a few
kernel options, and run some ipchains statement at boot time. Just
follow the directions in the IP Masquerading HOWTO.
There are somewhat different tools for 2.3+ kernels.
