Help with ipfwadm rules :(

I have a net with a NT 4 Box and a linux RedHat 5.0 (upgraded from kernel
2.032 to kernel 2.035). What I'm trying (quite a while now) is to set with
help of ipfwadm a masquerading firewall. The idea is, that the NT box can
only use email (smtp and pop) with the outside world. With the kernel
configuration is all ok.
At first I used a very short script with a few ipfwadm rules and
masquerading. This worked fine...but I saw, that I was letting only big
holes everywhere...
So I find something called dotfile (it generates firewall rules based on
ipfwadm). Well, I pasted this rules in the /etc/ppp/ip-up file. The problem
is, that I can't find why the thing doesn't work....

PLEASEEEEEEEE HELPPPPPP or a clue...or something snif snif
