You don't say which HOWTO, but the IP-Masquerade mini-HOWTO is
excellent.  Print that, print the ipfwadm manpage, read both a couple
of times and I think it will solve all your problems.  Worked for me.

The Networking howto (whatever it's called) ought to, or the system
administrator's guide, or lots of different books on system

Good luck,
