The answer is really long.

ok i try with the shortest (otherway ask me more details)

1) set the kernel like "ip masquerade" and "ip forwarding"
2) make the kernel and modules (for the ftp you need to load
   a/some module)
3) set the masquerade ip for your network with the command
   ipfwadm.
   (ex:
       ipfwadm -F -p deny
       ipfwadm -F -a masquerade -P tcp -S my_network -D 0.0.0.0/0
       ipfwadm -F -a masquerade -P udp -S my_network -D 0.0.0.0/0
    )and put this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local if you have slakware
    or other startup file.
4) and of course set your connection to internet with ppp
   or a network card.
5) on your private network only the tcp and udp (not ping,
   but yes for traceroute) can be used for pass through the       firewall (this is what we did now)

and finally you have to configure the single pc for:

gateway = address_of_linux_on_your_network
dns = the_dns_you_have_from_the_provider
