    hi to all- im new planning to deploy centos server 5.0 as gateway server on my network infrastructure...and had few questions to ask
    here in my list:

    => If i deploy centos server as GW- do it act ask NAT to my network...and how iptable works? is it means that every IP on my PC should be in the Ip tables to access external request.

    =>Also is there anyway that my centos server would look like a desktop enviroment no just commandline interface....

    any idea would help....thanks a lot..:)

    CentOS comes with a GUI for the desktop, probably both KDE and GNOME. Try
    from the command prompt.

    You need NAT if you need to have a routable address go to a particular non-routable address in your LAN. For normal purposes of the LAN pc's, nothing special required. Just make sure that your IPTables is not blocking more than you want.
