Thanks for all your replies - I have a ton of material to read through - I'll let you know around Easter time how I get on!
Not sure whether I need NAT or Masquerade now - here's my setup:
Internet --> [Cable Modem] --> [eth0|Linux box|eth1]-->[Hub]-->LAN
Make sense? Pretty common setup, I think. I need all LAN machines to access internet resources, and I would like most server software on the Linux box - I want the ability to have certain server stuff in the LAN for testing purposes so would need NAT for that (masquerade?).
Thanks - please clear up my confusion.
