    i think those are strange choices for ips. you probably want to do something like this.

    (internet)---->[eth0](192.168.1.1)[eth1]<---->(switch)<===>(192.168.1.10*)

    setup DHCP on 192.168.1.1 eth1 outbound to the switch. then just forward all traffic between eth0 to eth1. if you want to get fancy, block port ranges and add other rules to make it more of a firewall than just a router. there should be plenty of information online routing traffic between eth cards. 192.168.1.10* are generic workstations, 192.168.1.100 for example.
