  Please have a look at:


  which captures my experience doing the same thing. Others are
  encouraged to send me suggestions.

  Note that I still haven't updated this file per a recent
  conversation on this list. I will be moving the eth0 and eth1
  configuration to /etc/network/interfaces, the `echo "1" >
  /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward' line to /etc/network/options, and the
  rest of the script to /etc/network/firewall.

  As one person mentioned, use kernel-package. I've included a script
  that I use to drive the process. Please read and understand what
  each step does before running it!
