The difference is simple: Anyone can give advice such as "write yourself a firewall and routing script" or "try it with webmin" - you can only hope he has access to those.

You "understood" he has a fully configured network and a server with at least two Ethernet Cards, able to do the forwarding/NAT. If *any* of those assumptions is wrong, he may end up with a misconfigured network and NO internet access. how cool.

And how would that be worse than the popular OS that has a checkbox for internet sharing - which only works when you have a suitable network topology? Microsoft does it like this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306126 in case you are confused about the term.
