Network bridge problem

Hi there
I have a small network with a gateway connected to the net using windows xp and sharing the internet connection with my other pc's.

I have a pc who is accessing internet using my personal pc as a bridge, the bridge is working well under windows but I can't having it working with my new installation of fedora core 3.
IP's are dynamically given by the windows gateway so all ip's are 192.168.0.*, in my pc I have installed 2 eth interfaces, the first connected to the switch and having its IP dynamically, the other is configured to, and the other pc accessing to the internet using my pc as a bridge is configured to have a dynamic IP.

So can you help me configure my fedora to do the same as working under windows I've tried several things, I've created a bridge and bound the 2 interfaces to it, but either the 2 pc's are not accessing the net, when I destroy the bridge i can access the net on my pc but not on the other.

so I'm waiting for your help
