You'll need to enable NAT, and do some ip masquerading etc. There's loads of howtos on the internet. Here's and example

Did you set up routing on the linux box? (ip forwarding, firewall rules and so on....)
In suse you can use yast if you are not familiar with command line editing.
So be sure to configure the network enabling ip forwarding, nat if necessary, set up the firewall to use the internal network as trust zone, and then you can use your linux box as the dafault gateway for the winxp machine.
