I think I have proven that I am not a network wizard but here goes anyway.  If you want two different networks (internet / class C 192.168.x.x ) you don't want them on the same cable.  You really do need to seperate your networks and make sure there is a gateway in the middle.  That means two network cards, one for each network, in the go between box.  Someone wrote about ipmasq which works very well.  Widows has internet connection sharing as well.  My friend just installed Mandrake and it has a do it all setting for internet connection sharing that setup everything from a forwarding dns server to iptable rules.  Pretty cool stuff.
