Simply configure the two nics in your linux box and then tell it to forward
packets from one interface to the other if needed (so both networks are
connected). This is done by advising linux to do ip forwarding. By doing
this your linux box acts as a router.
To enable ip forwarding say:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
This has to set each time you boot the machine, so put it in some
init-script or something like this.
Info about this can be found in several Networking howtows and
