sure it is!! there are lots of tools out there for just this too - look at ipmasqerading. iptables (kernel 2.4) and ipchains are both good for this. check out firestarter or pmfirewall (do a goggle search) for this - as for dial on demand there is an option to be put in the /etc/ppp/options file called demand - i don;t remeber the exact syntax - if ya check out the ppp man pages it should help.
