Setting up firewall / nat server

Hi All.

We have a small business network and have a Cisco ADSL Router and I would like to set up a firewall using FC4 between that and the rest of the network. What do I need to do to get it to act as nat server?

The server has two network cards, eth0 connected to the router and eth1 connected to the network switch. The configuration is as follows:

Cisco Router <--> [eth0] FC4 server [eth1] <--> LAN Network

This should get you started;
Here is mine, like yours eth0=WAN eth1=LAN
# iptables -F; iptables -t nat -F; iptables -t mangle -F
# iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/forwarding
# iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
# iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -i ! eth0 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT
# iptables -P INPUT DROP
and to enable stuff;
# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 20 -j ACCEPT
or this may be for fedora not sure;
# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
