huh, it should be simple. just configure and bring up both of your NICs and route other computers through this box. """route ADD destinationIP GatewayPC_IP"""""

if you want this box be able to act like a wide area network simulator then you need some kind of application in it. FreeBSD has dummynet, i guess Fedora you have to download some 3rd party sw.

You will also need to enable IP Forwarding if your going to use the system as a router. in /etc/sysctl.conf, you would add the following lines

# Controls IP packet forwarding
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1

Then load the changes with "sysctl -p"
