Help with Gateway and dhcp


Hello everyone. I need help. I work at a LAN shop and as of late our gateway we had became fried due to a power surge. The guy that had setup the old gateway no longer works here and I am stuck trying to set up a new one. I have done lots of things to try to get it work and lot of research. Iíve tried setting up iptables with no success and tried gui programs like firestarter. I was wondering if you guys could help me out and tell me exactly how I need to do it to get it working. Let me give you some information about what exactly I need.

I have a box installed with Debian 3.1r2 and with two Ethernet cards. What I need is to configure the box so that the internet comes in from the dsl modem to eth0 and out on eth1 to the local network. I also need to configure a dhcp server for the local network. I need the dhcp server to assign an ip range from 10.64.1.110 to 10.64.1.199 out to the local network. Please if help me so I can get the internet back up in the LAN shop. I appreciate any and all help. Thank you so much in advance.

You need to assign IP addresses for each NIC on the Debian box by entering the following into your terminal as root
Code:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.3 255.255.255.0
this assumes that your dsl modem has the address 192.168.1.1
and for the other card
Code:
ifconfig eth1 10.64.1.11 255.255.255.0
Then you need to look at this excellent DHCP Server tutorial
