Angry XP behind SuSE 9.1 System - Partial Access

I have a Linux box running SuSE 9.1 that is connected to a cable modem on one nic card and an internal network on the other nic. The SuSE 9.1 box acts as a router and firewall in addition to standard work station duties and it runs both DHCP and BIND.

I have another computer running XP that connects to the internal network. I can only access some web sites from the XP system. I can get to google without any problem and some other web sites but if it is anything other then google, it is extremely slow and either takes several minutes to load a web page or it will error out. Connecting to google never seems to be a problem but any other site does.

I've tried everything I can think of. I've verified that it connects to the DNS server It gets a valid dhcp address 192.168.253. I connected an old Win98 box to the network (same cable and everything) and it seems to work OK.

Any ideas?
