http://www.fs-security.com/docs/connection-sharing.php shows how to
set up internet connection sharing using 'firestarter' which is a nice
front end to ip-tables.
Or there's http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=91370
It's a few years old now, but it shows a step by step way to (manually)
set up connection sharing on an ubuntu box.
The google search term that'll help most is probably 'Ubuntu
internet connection sharing'.
Hope this helps,
