route wlan0 to eth0

Distro is Suse 8.2. This should be really easy I think. I have a situation where I want to access the Internet from an Ipaq through a wireless connection. The laptop is connected to the Internet via ppp0. The wlan0 is running the HostAP driver and communicates with the Ipaq, i.e. from the Ipaq I can access Samba shares on my Linux box. However, I cannot access the Internet. I have ip forwarding set to on through YaST. It seems that nothing is being routed. It seems that this should be as easy as setting up a router with two hardwire NICs.

I have done a couple searches and found that routing is different for wlan0 & similars devices. So I am using Squid proxy instead. I am able to connect to the Interent from my Ipaq now if my laptop is on ppp0. But I am unable to connect if my laptop must go though a proxy. So how do I setup Squid to go through another proxy?
