Question Ubuntu 7.04, need help connecting other computers to net thru this cpu

Hi, I am new to Ubuntu 7.04 Desktop edition, just switched from XP pro on my desktop that also serves as my main connection to the internet through DSL. I have got my dsl connection up and running, however this desktop also serves as my server. I have two network cards, one of which is for the DSL connection (working), and the other runs to my Netgear router to share the connection with other computers/game systems on my home network(detected, but apparently not working). The problem is that I can not connect to the internet through my other computers/game systems now? I am completely new to Linux, but thus far I LOVE IT, if I can just get the hang of everything. Thank you!

There are many tutorials for this on the internet. Here's one from my yahoo search; it deals with internet connection sharing specifically with Ubuntu.
