Add route from laptop through workstation...

Hi all!

This feels like a really stupid question, I thought this was going to be 

Basically, my workstation is connected to the net with ADSL, and now I 
added a second NIC, and connected a laptop to the NIC with a cross-over 

I then configured the eth1 interface on the workstation:
iface eth1 inet static

because I have a similar setup on a network were I have a real router 
(floppyfw-based), and where this laptop usually is. It's not mine, so I 
usually don't have it here at home. On the laptop, I then went ifup 
eth0, and then, the workstation and laptop talks to eachother just 

But packets from the workstation can't reach the outside world, but I 
thought just adding a route from there would do the appropriate 
masqing, so 
route add default gw eth0
on the laptop would do the trick... Apparently not... 

Anybody else have this sort of setup...?
