Is the Linux box your gateway? 

If so, you're going to need iptables or ipchains. My local guru says
iptables is preferable.

If not, I believe you can simply tell the Linux box that its address
is 10.0.0.whatever, or whatever IP address you want it to have. And 
give it the IP-forwarding gateway as its gateway address.

If you need more detail, ask.
