probably a simple routing or firewall question

    I've got a 5.4 box acting as a gateway/router and i have to set up 
another for another network. This one will rely on a different ip range, so 
i thought i'd hand it out while i'm doing the install via my dhcp server, 
this part works but the box can't get to the net to retrieve ports and so 
forth. I'm suspecting either a routing or firewall issue. I'm using pf and 
am natting all traffic from this new box to my external interface and 
passing all traffic, that should be working. My network range is 
and the range for this new box is i believe my problem is here, 
i'm not sure where to fix it at, my gateway, this new box or both? I'd 
rather not make to many modifications to this new machine save what it needs 
to get going, ideally i'd like to hand it over, and have it be dropped in 
and go. It needs to be that simple, the person whose getting it has an 
impulsive habbit especially if something doesn't work right out of the box.
Any help appreciated.
