RE: RH8.0 as a internet router

You can also make the change in /etc/sysctl.conf, then run 'sysctl -p'
instead of the echo command. You will also need a firewall script that
supports NAT. I personally use the one written my my co-worker, Mike
Gahagan, found at http://people.redhat.com/mgahagan/firewall/fwiptables

After you have the basic setup working, You can get fancy and set up
services like DHCP on the internal interface of the linux system, DNS,
ntpd, mail (both in and out) and don't forget that should your DSL have
a dynamic IP, you can host your official DNS at a place like
mydyndns.org, and run a script to update your IP as it changes so your
mail keeps working. The possibilities are nearly endless.
