[Shorewall-users] PPP <--> RH9 <--> LinkSys <--> Home Network

This might be a little crazy, but thought I'd ask here anyway ...
I currently have a home machine -- running Shorewall, of course --
connected to my campus modem pool using PPP. Until I can get real
broadband access, I am wondering if I could add a LinkSys box (WRT54G)
and use PPP.
I guess the goal would be something like this:
| | | +<=======> \
PPP | | 10BaseT | +<=======> | 10BaseT
<========>+ RH9 +<========>+ WRT54G +<=======> | Home Network
| | | +<=======> /
| | | |
So, I guess there are two questions:
o Is the above even possible with the WRT54G?
o How to setup 'shorewall' to allow this?
What I *think* I need to do is make the RH9 box appear as if it were
an ISP ... if I could fake that, it just might work!
I told you it was crazy! ;-)
Thanks for any ideas!
