/stand/sysinstall is not going to be much help. You need to
edit /etc/rc.conf and set defaultrouter=[upstream_router] to
set your gateway on the firewall. The machines on your LAN
will use the inside interface of the firewall as their
gateway. 

I need a little more information. Is this machine already
connected to the Internet? If so, defaultrouter is already
set; if not, I would work on that side (outside interface)
first.
