2 ethernet cards to share internet

I know there are tons of posts on this subject allready, but none of them seemed to answer my question.

I have a nForce 2 board with two built in ethernet cards running mandrake 9.1 on it. I have another computer that has one ethernet card that I want to install Gentoo on, problem is it's slow, 900, so I don't want to tie my internet up waiting for Gentoo to install.

Is it possible to have my old computer connect to my new computer to share internet? I went to Mandrake Control Center and it didn't help much.

I'm connected to the internet on this computer with eth0 and want to use eth1 to connect to my old computer. Is there any easy way to set that up with all the mandrake gui stuff?

to share the internet you have to setup a firewall and then use masquerading to share the internet

firestarter and fwbuilder are two good firewall's with good GUI
