Help to configure network to transparently access the zaurus handheld.

I have a network of several computers and a zaurus handheld. The zaurus is connected to one machine via a usb cradle. It is interface usb0 on that machine and its ip is All the other machines are in for wireless lan and for wired lan. On the machine where the zaurus is connected, I have full access to it via usb0 tcp/ip. I have that machine as an ipmasquerade server for the zaurus so I can surf the net with the zaurus while connected via the zaurus' usb cradle. However, no other machine on the lan can access the zaurus. I need to define a route that will allow the other machines to connect to the zaurus.

I thought it was as simple as running this on the other machines:

/sbin/route add -net netmask gw

where is the machine that has usb0 connected to the zaurus. I thought this would basically add the network to the routing table so any packets destined to this are routed to has this for the routing table:

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * U 0 0 0 usb0

So all packets that reach it that is intended for should be sent to usb0.

It is not working. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
