HELP: how to setup a linux DHCP proxy server

Am a linux newbie and like to setup a linux server which will act as a DHCP, DNS & proxy (masquerade) server. I assume any major/popular distribution will have DHCP, DNS, etc. additional software.. but am wondering if someone can give me a quick rundown on how to quickly set one up.

This linux server will have 2 NICs, one connected internally to the SWITCH with a LAN IP. The other connected externally with WAN IP. The other client PCs use this linux server as their gateway. ALL client PCs are Windows based.... so am hoping they will log in as a WORKGROUP... and get IP address assigned via DHCP, etc.

Please someone give me pointers on how to go about this. Or does those LiveCDs auto config?

PS: I don't mind using ubuntu, fedora, etc.

Fedora might be handy with the Directory Services... coz all windows PCs can log in like a domain then....

PSS: It's not really a proxy server... I just found out what I need is a masquerade
