There are two main ways (that I am aware of anyway)

1) If you have static IP address from your ISP for all of the machines on
your network.  Recompile your kernel for ip forwarding and set the gateway
of your other pc's to the ip address of your linux box.

2) If you don't have static IP address.  Read the IP-Masquerade HOWTO
(/usr/doc/HOWTO/mini - if you have installed them) which will explain it a
lot better than I can :)
