Mandrake 10 (server) to Windows XP (client) networking (how to).
 
My problem is the following:
I have a linux server connected to the internet (cable modem @ ~100kbps)
I have two pc's on Win Xp professional.
I have searched the net (google) for a walkthrough on how to set up the network, but I didn't find anything concludent.
So I'll include the info's that someone might need to help me:
Network description:

One server (2 ethernet adapter cards, one for the internet connection and another one for giving internet to the network)
One switch
Two clients

Server ip configs:
internet: ip 62.231.96.196
mask: 255.255.255.248
gateway: 62.231.96.193
dns: 62.231.96.2
alt dns: 62.231.96.4

network: ip 192.168.3.1
mask: 255.255.255.0

Now, the questions is:
what programs (modules) must I use to get the linux server to see the windows clients?
And how can I make the windows clients connect to the internet through the linux server?

If you know a page that gives a walkthrough for this, please tell me.
