I'm going to guess that the problem is with the routing on the Linux box. Try:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

This will turn on routing in the kernel.

(Also add to /etc/network/options: ip_forward=yes   in order to make sure that it is enabled on reboot)

In order to assist the experts are you using iptables/ipchains?:

iptables -L
ipchains -L

What distribution are you using?

Are you using any routing software? Squid etc?

you need some software. simply plugging them in together is not going to make the packets route.

here is an interesting article about NAT and Linux. At the bottom you will find links to different software packages that will provide routing for you. many of which may already be available on your disrtobutions discs.
