All you need to do is set the gateway on all the machines (except the one
connected to the Internet) to point to the LAN IP address of the machine
connected to the Internet. Then set the gateway of that machine's NIC to
point to the IP address of the DUN connection. NT server will just route.
You don't have to do anything else.

Using your IPs from above:

gateway on all machines (except DUN machine)
gateway of DUN machine's NIC -
