Router box forwarding IP addresses to main server?

Okay, here's my question. I've currently got a small router box (Slackware based) and a large server (also Slack based). From my ISP I got a half block of IPs (XX.XX.XX.130 - XX.XX.XX.254 with gateway of XX.XX.XX.129). My issue is this:

1) How do I get the router to forward all the IPs to the server? Do I use IPTables? The "route" command"? The Hosts file?

2) Does the route need to be set to XX.X.XX.130 for all of this to work, or can the server be set there?

3) How do I subnet all the addresses out? The server needs to host DNS, web, FTP, and mail, plus it is going to be doing the DHCP for the rest of the internal network on ETH1.

Currently I have the router pulled into the extended D-Mark on eth0. From the routers' eth1 there is a crossover cable to the servers eth0.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer!
