i struggled with this one for quite a while; i was convinced i was doing
everything right, but it just wouldn't work! ...i finally decided the
stock v1.1.59 kernel supplied with slackware 2.1 does *not* have the
routing and gatewaying feature configured into the kernel! a quick
recompile with the routing turned on fixed the problem (the source i had
on hand was for v1.1.64, so that's what i configured & compiled up for
linux.k9iu.ampr.org; so i've not actually tried it with the v1.1.59 source
distributed with slackware v2.1.0).

73 & happy linux-ing!
