Using Linux as an internet router / gateway

Let me start off by saying that I am in no way an expert in Linux. I am decidedly a nOOb.

I'm not even sure exactly where to start off with this question, so let me describe my problem, and hopefully you guys could point me in the right direction.

I have a desktop computer that has a broadband connection to the internet, via a network card (eth0). This computer has Fedora Core 2 installed on it.

We have a number of users who are using laptops with Windows XP Pro on them. I would like for these computers to be able to dial into the modem in the desktop computer, and utilize its internet connection.

Like I said, I'm new to this level of depth in using Linux, so bear with me if this question has already been answered somewhere.
