network address translation

The motherboard in my homeserver died. I decided to take my Media PC and put opensuse 10.3 on it and Mythtv and have it also do everything my old server did.

I got dhcp and dns working all the computers in my house are getting ip addresses from the linux box but I have no idea how to get linux to let them use the internet. I searched for howtos on network address translation I didn't find anything I could understand.

I'm a total linux newbie but my networking and general pc knowlage is high

You can use YaST2 -> Security -> Firewall -> Masquerading to set that up.
