You need a hub, a switch, a router or a crossover cable to connect the two network cards (the "internal" one on your FC5 machine and the one on the other PC). Then install firestarter or some other advanced configuration tool for iptables. That will handle the setup for you...

I don't use firestarter, but they (meaning users of these forums) tell me it's possible to configure connection sharing with it. Explore the interface, shouldn't be too hard to find...

Restarting the network should fix it, then try configuring firestarter again.
