hp procurve 5400zl vlan inter-vlan routing problems

Both me and my IT manager are new to VLAN territory, so we're having a bit of trouble setting up our prototype vlan environment.  We are moving offices soon and thus re-designing our network.  We recently just ran out of /24 addressing and we are going to seperate our broadcast domains with several vlans.

We can't get inter-vlan routing to work.  Our DHCP server is disconnected from the switch entirely to make it as simple as possible to test.  We currently have 3 VLANs set up on our procurve 5406zl.  One for workstations, one for servers, and the default vlan.  I have computer A( on it's own vlan and computer B( on another vlan.  Both computers use static addressing.  IP routing is on, however when I connect to the switch from computer B, I can't ping computer A - pinging from B to A or A to B doesn't work either.  For simplicity's sake, I have nothing connected to the VLAN

Here's a simple diagram

A----(10.0.2 vlan)-----PROCURVE-----(10.0.1 vlan)----B


What do I need to do to get inter-vlan routing to work?  From my understanding of the manual, VLANs on the same switch can communicate directly through the switch using inter-vlan routing, but I haven't been able to yet.
