You're making it too hard.  To route traffic from one interface to the
other, enable IP forwarding.

  echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

or 

  sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

ought to do the trick assuming your kernel has been compiled to
support IP forwarding.  The default installation kernel does do this.
However, I recommend recompiling your kernel to reduce the SCSI driver
bloat (unless you really do have 20 SCSI controllers in your system).
This gives you the opportunity to enable firewalling, etc.
