/etc/network/interfaces is where you should set up potato
networking parameters, including your internal (192.168.*.*
probably) net card and your external net card; then

	apt-get install ipmasq

and you should be done.

for your other computers, specify 192.168.debian.box as
their gateways. there's a bit more to it than this,
and someone's working on it, hot and heavy, over
at eGroups.com/group/newbieDoc...

There are only two places in the world where time takes
precedence over the job to be done.  School and prison.
