I want to use my machine to share a cable modem.
eth0 goes to a hub and is all currently set up;

eth1 (the PCI card) will go to the cable modem.
I figure that the next thing to do is DHCP.
How to I get dhcpcd to configure ONLY eth1? (Does

The box will have to do IP Masquerade, this is

I have that as a script on my iMac to offer masquerading to my laptop.
# install ipchains modulemodprobe ipchains

# Deny all forwarding
ipchains -P forward DENY
# Forward (masquerade) to eth0 (internet) what comes from 192.168.1.2
ipchains -A forward -i eth0 -s 192.168.1.2/32 -j MASQ
