It's real simple. Just make sure you have Iptables or Ipchains ( prferably tables ) compiled into your kernel or loaded as a module, than obtain the Iptables or Ipchains binary ( probably included with your Fedora) and setup a NAT / IP_MASQUERADE script. There are several tutorials and HOWTOs on how to do this, and if it takes a while sinking in there are plenty of example scripts out there whcih will work right away with almost any setup, try googleing for 'iptables NAT example'.

Have fun.
