Well, what have you done/what is the box doing/not doing?  The IP Masq
howto has two ipchains commands that are a good starting point for
getting it going.  That with the "echo 1 >
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward" should take care of it.  Well, along with
the appropriate kernel compilations.  If you want to restrict the
access, then it gets just slightly more complicated with ipchains, but
they have a whole howto that talks about everything you can do with it.
