Unhappy Ip masquarading

can anyone help, this is the first time i have used linux i am using suse 7.2 pro. I have managed to setup linux.
I have setup eth0(cable modem on dhcp) and eth1(internal network). I have linked my windows machine to the network which can talk to the linux box but cannot access the internet which i have set the network configuration on windows, I am assuming that it is IP masq that is causing the probs, I have reas the how to install it but am a bit baffled, i am not sure how to recompile the kernel. Any advice would be appreciated, or would it be easier to reinstall but make sure IP masq is selected...
thanks in advance

you can setup IP masqing without re-compiling your kernel... you can use 'insmod' to load modules if necessary. first, read the IP-masq HOWTO:

i setup my 7.2 system to masq with iptables, which was not difficult.

Check out the Network admin. guide for more networking info:
