im not the grand master if firewalls and routing but as i understand it, a firewall and a router are both results of what you do with ip_tables. ip_tables monitors, filters, and controls every packet in and out if your machine.
so basically set up your firewall because that is where you tell ip_tables what to do with packets incoming to your two interfaces.
since you're on suse there will be a firewall config program in YaSt. if i remember right there is somewhere to setup connection sharing(routing or forwarding).
hope thats somehow useful
