Question iptables forwarding from ppp connection onto LAN

I'm experimenting with connecting my Palm organizer via my Linux PC (mandrake 8.2) to the rest of my local net and the internet.

Palm --ppp-- LinuxPC --lan-- Alcatel speedtouch 510 ---adsl-- The internet

I also have another linux PC & an imac hanging off the 510 all on the lan, the ppp connection uses

I get the ppp connection up fine, and can access apache on my PC.

If I use guidedog to enable ipforwarding then from the palm I can reach hosts on the internet but not on the local network.

I have been reading thro iptables docs but finding it hard going

I still a at this.
