PIX 506e static nat for services

I have a linux box in my dmz that I am trying to allow access to the web server in my private network.  I added the following to my PIX to allow a static nat

My pix outside interface is, inside

static (inside,outside) netmask 0 0
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host eq www

The linux box IP is on the same network as the pix outside interface.  But when I try and connect using the address I receive a 'no route to host' error.

The route table of the linux box is    *            U    0 0 0   eth0
loopback      gentoo            UG 0 0 0   lo
default                UG 0 0 0   eth0

So why am I getting this error?

The host is local to you, so where are you seeing this error, on the gentoo box, or the PIX?
Do you have proxyarp enabled for the outside interface?
What is the subnet mask on the outside interface of the PIX?
What is the default gateway of the box ?
