[CS-FSLUG] Setting Up Connection Sharing - SUSE 10.0

Don, and are most likely the
subnet masks for the LAN and Roadrunner
(respectively), not the gateway IPs.  The DHCP service
for the LAN should have your router, as
the default gateway (verify on any of your hosts). 
Your router will receive it's default gateway via DHCP
from Roadrunner.  You can verify the path taken by
your LAN computers with a 'traceroute'
(this is one of the google.com IPs).  If you can get
outside your LAN, the problem could be DNS related,
which you can check by verifying settings in your DHCP
server.  Let me know if any of this helps.  (Any
additional information you can provide would also
help).  Thanks
