You want to use IP Masquerading -- this will allow your Win95 boxes to see
past your server to the net.  Everything sent FROM your Win95 boxes will
appear (to the network on the other side) to have originated from the
linux server,  so the Win95 machines won't be directly acessible from the
external network.
