Default Some networking help

Hi guys,

Pretty new to openbsd and confusing myself on what I would like to do. I was using openbsd as my gateway box for everything, worked great. Recently I have moved to a wireless router, but I would still like to use my openbsd box. Instead of just throwing it on the wireless network though, I would like my openbsd box to use another internet connection(dsl). Wireless router is on cable.

So right now I have Openbsd connected to the dsl and online. Next to that I have a windows xp box connected via the wireless router on the cable. I have an open NIC in both computers. Can I connect these via the 2 nics directly, and access the openbsd box locally for any computer on the cable network? If that makes sense.. I've confused myself thinking about this and not sure how to go about setting it up.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
