Building a firewall/gateway

I have tried IpCop and SME Server and one or two others and they dont do exactly what i want to i have decided to build my own firewall/gateway system based on slackware 10.

So far i have got ppp setup so i can dail up the internet from the slackware box but i need to add iptables and NAT. This is the point were i am stuck.

Do i use Ip-Forward or can it all be done with iptables?

The SLB (Slackware Box) has one modem ppp0 and on nic eth0.

You can do this with iptables. Here's the docs.
