I have a box with Dual network cards, and windows 2003 configgured on it.  Our linkus router keeps dieing on us so for the short term I would like to have this box to act as my router and dish out internet and do some basic port forwarding.  I know it is not the best solution but this is what is presented to me..  The firewall on the Linkis is still working well so I will use it primarly as our firewall and the new machine becomes the router.  Can someone help me by pointing me to so good documentation on how to do this?

Take a look at the following article:

This is the easiest method of configuring a simple NAT Firelwall and Router through Windows 2003 Server's built-in Routing and Remote Access Component.

You should also be able to configure simple port forwarding policies between both Network Interfaces through this Snap-in as well.
