Using Linux Webserver as Router too.

I just set up my Linux Box as a Webserver. I would like to use this same Box as the GATEWAY to the internet and route traffic to the other computers on my network.

Is there a Tutorial on this, or can someone tell me what I need to setup on the linux box to enable this funtionality.

I'm running Mandrake 9.1 on the Webserver. I already have 2 nic's installed. One connected to the Cable Modem, the second connected to my Linksys switch which then branches to my other 2 WIN Boxes.

Is it as easy as enabling DHCP on the Linux Box???
Is there a special config???

This noob would appreciate any info.

There are lots of tutoials about settign up router using redhat and mandrake on this site. Just follow those then make sure you allow access to port 80 of the server so that you still ahve access to your web server.
