It is probably a good start point.

It looks like the script needs Tor to run on a virtual address.
This could be done by adding another address to your default interface

# ifconfig eth0:0

and use that address in your tor config.

You should probably contact the author directly if you have problem getting
that particular script to work. As for iptables or tc related questions,
they should probably be asked on their respective mailing-lists.
