It must be an arp issue.

Either a switch is impeding arp (via a VLAN or locking of ports or similar) or 
the bridging equipment is just not bridging for machines other than the one 
that is working. From your original email you indicated an arp response on 
the machine that worked (.8). Have you tried putting in a static arp entry on 
the machine to .5 on .7? ie:

# arp -s 0:50:73:68:a4:22

See if you get any pings...


PS: a note regarding switches locking ports : sometimes switches will lock 
down a port if they see the IP address change, this is a security mode that 
is usually off by default and is only available on fairly intelligent 
switches. I just thought I'd raise it as it might be relevant.
