Hello,
in my small LAN all computers run TCP/IP some of the are Win, DOS etc.
I want to set up a gateway? with my one linux server that all computers can go into the internet over a ppp to my isp.
I already know that i should install ip masq. or a firewall proxy but does it work with diald? How do i have to manage this?
Additional i want to use over the same connection (which will be handle with a isdn ta) uucp over ip. UUCP is running but how can i put it over the ip connection?

This is quite simple. What you need to do is set a defaultroute from your linux box to your isp's end (which is already set if you can ping the outside world from your linux box).
Then add a host route for all the pc's on your LAn ie:

route add -host aaa.bbb..ccc.ddd netmask fff.fff.fff.ggg

Then setup all the pc's on the LAN to have a defaultroute pointing to your Linux box.

Then all the PC's on the LAN will be able to use the PPP connection through the Linux box.
