[TriLUG] Routing/router questions from a network wannabe :-)

I have a Verizon Broadband card ( EVDO ) that works great with Ubuntu,
Red Hat 9.0, and Fedora Core 5 on my laptop. I would like to create a
system within my laptop that would hook to the internet through the EVDO
card ( in the pc/pcmcia card slot on my laptop ) and use a usb- ethernet
adapter to provide a internet connection to other users within a small
Since these are two different networks (usb-ethernet is 192.168.x.x.
where EVDO is dynamically assigned IP address from verizon ) and
different types of adapters ( usb-ethernet is eth0 and the EVDO card is
ppp0 ) , I don't know how to pass traffice from one adapter to the other.
Can someone point me to a plain and SIMPLE instruction set or howto that
would enlighten me on what to do?? I am not sure whether I should be
working with the route tables, iptables, a combination of the two --- Or
something totally different.
I would prefer using Fedora Core 5 for this project, but if it is easier
to accomplish with something different, I am game.
Thanks for your input.
