Hey thanks Ian,
                     It turned out the problem was just that I had put
the DomU on the wrong subnet. I had made a silly assumption, thinking
that since the NAT rule is supposed to rewrite packets to have the
same IP as Dom0, that that rule would apply to all packets originating
on the same machine. My thinking now is that it applies only to
packets from the same subnet.  Now I'm wondering if the rule I
currently have in place will modify or duplicate packets coming from
outside the machine. This is my first experience setting up NAT, so if
you have any advice I would appreciate hearing it. I'm not intending
to use this machine as a router, I just want to route packets from my
DomU's correctly. The router that serves as the gateway on my home
network is currently configured to only give out IP's on the
192.168.1.x subnet, so if you think I need to modify the rule somehow,
please let me know.
