help: ubuntu as a server connecting local network to internet

Now I have a small network within my friends in my college hostel. Currently using a router to connect to ADSL. However I found the router is so lousy that it does not have an iptable and decided to use my computer as a server for easy management.

Can anyone tell me how can i do it since I am still a newbie.

I am using kubuntu 5.10, with one ethenet cable and one wireless card. one router with ADSL modern. another five windows machine all using wireless connection

when I did
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward</userdefined
I got
bash: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward: Permission denied
even I use sudo.

Further more, I am not quite understand the "Firewall Script" part, is it a file? where is it? or is it terminal command? Is there any simplier step-by-step how-to since I am still a newbie?
