Been up for over four hours and no answers yet? Well then:
I don't see anything in the above about any NAT, which you need
if those private-IP hosts are going to talk to the Internet.
You didn't say what kernel version you're running, so read the
documentation on either ipchains or iptables--or go straight to
the IP-masquerading Howto.

Well, you have a name server on your gateway machine, so that's
where you're getting the IP address from. The internal computer
apparently made no contact with the Internet at all.

If there's an /etc/init.d/ppp*, that might be an appropriate
place. If not, there's always /etc/init.d/networking, or copy
that to a new name, edit it a lot, and read man update-rc.d
about the order of execution of the init scripts and see how to
set your routes after the interfaces are up.
