Can I use a computer with a wireless internet connection as a wired router for another computer?

                  I have a computer with a wireless card that gets pretty decent reception from my router.  However, I have another old computer that I want to use as a basic website server, and I don't want to have to buy another wireless card for it.  Could I just connect an ethernet cable to my computer with an internet connection and then have it serve as a router for the other computer?   Do I need any special software to do this (The computer with wireless is running Ubuntu 9.something or other, the Karmic Koala, I think.  I'm planning on putting Fedora 11/12 with the server package on the other computer)?  Thanks!

If your wireless router has more than one Ethernet port on the back then the answer is yes. just run a cable from the free port on the back of your router to the other machine'
