Question Setting up Linux as a router

I am running Red Hat 7.2 and attached to the internet through a Cable modem. I have two NIC cards installed in the linux to the cable modem and one to the internal. I was wondering if anyone could explain how I can setup my linux box as a router so other computers on the internal network can access the internet?
