Unhappy Mandriva Firewall setup


I'm trying to build a firewall with mandriva 2007. I did a basic install on a box with 2 NIC's. The one NIC is connected to a dsl connection ( and it's ip is
The second NIC has an IP of and is connected to network.
I can ping both and from a pc on the network, but I cannot ping anything on the internet e.g. I can however ping from the firewall box.

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S - I have iptables turned off.
