It is pretty easy in Suse using the YaST configuration tool.

Go to the Green Button on the lower left side of your screen...
Go up to System / YaSt

When in Yast, select Security and Users

Select Firewall

Select the External Interface
Note: you may be able to leave that on auto. In my case, I ran the command: /sbin/ifconfig to verify which nic is connected to the Internet.

Select the Internal Interface
Note: that is the one connected to the local network

Configure the services that should be available on your server

Select Firewall Features
Check [X] Forward Traffic and Do Masquerading
Un-Check [ ] Protect from Internal Network

Finish

That should do it on the Linux side of things.
On the Windows boxes, you need to put the ip address in manually including default gateway ( the Linux internal nic address ) and your ISP dns server address.

Note: If you setup the Linux box as a dhcp server, you could have Windows obtain address automatically.
