The general idea is to configure the NIC that has an internet connection incoming on it(where you plugged the cable) with the settings provided by your ISP.This will make internet woking on the Linux machine.
As for the second NIC You could give it and IP adrress :192.168.0.1 with a subnet mask:255.255.255.0 and the DNS:192.168.0.1.
Now on the other computers put same settings but increase the last number of the IP by one on each different computer.Ex:2nd PC 192.168.0.2, 3rd PC 192.168.0.3 with all pcs having as subnet masks:255.255.255.0 and the default gateway 192.168.0.1 and the DNS 192.168.0.1.
And i guess u need to enable Internet connection sharing on the Linux machine wish i dont know how to do on Fedora.
This way is guaranted to work on Windows ( i am using this way).maybe it might need some twists or diffrent setting to work on Fedora.
Of course since ur using a switch all the cabling should be straight.
By the way, what OS are you using on the other PCs??
