He can't ping from the Linux box, Enabling forwarding (which he
probably wants anyway) or enabling proxyarp (otherwise known as a hack
for devices that are too stupid to have a gateway setting) isn't going
to help.

For the OP, do you have IPTables running? Try stopping IPTables with
"service iptables stop" .

Second, try posting your output from 'ifconfig -a'.
