Make sure you have bind installed and two ethernet cards installed.
Give the lan ethernet card a static IP such as

Use the firestarter package (www.fs-security.com).

Run the wizard (5 screens) http://www.fs-security.com/pics/wizard3.png

You're done!

If you are curious about how to do this yourself, check /etc/ 
firestarter there is a "firewall" config file that shows every step the  
program did to enable forwarding, etc.

If you are generally happy with the program, you can add in custom  
scripts in the user-pre file- they load before firestarters other rules  
and take precendence.

If you hate the program, study what options it passes under the config
