Sharing he net connection.

I have a few windows XP machines wanting access to the internet, through a fedora box.

The fedora box contains 2 nicīs, one connects to the modem, the other connects to a switch.

The XP machines machines get assigned an IP by the fedora box, but it cant resolve any url's.

I also have iptables set up, What else do i have to do?
