XP-Linux Internet network linux gateway

Hi guys
I have a network of 3 computers all running xp , one XP computer is the internet server with a pppoe connection that take is DCHP on a network card. The other computer are connected to it through the second network card with the following specification:

The other computers use as their internet gateway and dns server.

Now to the main problem, I have installed suse linux 9.0 on the server and I configured my pppoe connection on eth0, now I know that I have to setup ip forwarding or something like that on eth1.
Can someone provide a few steps to let the other computer connect to the internet through their current settings "I do not have a firewall enabled on the linux box"

Thanks in advance for any help
