Win2K as a Router

Need EXPLICIT, DETAILED steps in setting up Win2K to route IP between a local network (Static 10.0.0.x, subnet mask 255.255.255.0) and a network card on the internet with DHCP assigned 167.206.x.y, 255.255.255.128.

The machine to be used as a "router" has RRAS services installed and, through installing NAT, OSPF, and RIP2 I've attempted to get routing working, but have yet to be successful.  The "router" box also can see and communicate with computers on the internet and the local net but a computer on the local net can ONLY communicate with the "router" and not beyond.

Ok, I'm trying to get a local network to see the internet (via a cable modem connection on the server) The cable connection is DHCP assigned to the 10BaseT NIC whose IP is 167.206.x.y - though it's DHCP, it hasn't changed in over 13 months (not this surprises me).  

I had things working when I was running NT4 and Proxy Server, but I'd rather do a routing thing.  I looked into (a little) the idea of using that checkbox discussed in the KB article, but I want to keep my 10.0.0.x scheme rather than change to 192.168.0.x, which the article implies (further, while I didn't read the article carefully (yet), I don't know if the cable connection, being DHCP, will be interrupted by using the option - it shouldn't I know, but I thought I read something (glanced something) that said it wouldn't work if either address were given by DHCP.

I run here W2k as router with a cable modem. Internal adresses are in the 172 range and this works fine.

So I work like this.

Cable modem connected to a NIC with the DHCP enabled: ip is 223.x.x.x.

Second NIC: Fix ip adres 172.x.x.1 to a HUB 8 ports to my other PC's 172.x.x.2 to 5

I have Internet Sharing on and I can run explorer on all my Pc's, and mail on 1 pc (not the router).

Which NIC has internet sharing on?  The one connected to the cable line or to the local network (I'm assuming the one connected to the cable line).

The one with the cable modem on.. and I have just check here my IP adresses are in the 192.168.x.x range I just remember that ICS (Internet Sharing Connection) use 192.168.0.1 for the first adapter. So you need to change the IP range. I must investigate that deeper in my beta-site tomorrow. I will see for that...

If it works (I won't be able to test until late tonight) I'll give you a B grade unless you want me to hold off and see if you can come up with a solution that will allow use of the 10.0.0.x network...

OK, it works - using 10.0.0.1 no less.  Win2K wanted to use 192.168.0.x and by default sets that up, but it can be changed afterwards.  Thanks for your time and tips.
