what exactly won't work? Please provide us with some more information.
Is forwarding turned on on the gateway machine?

Does dhcpd work correctly? Does DNS work?

If something don't work, please give us the config-files and log file

This shouldn't be a big problem, so with the right information this list
will help you out. :-)
