Well at least you know the NAT machine is working.  Are you sure you're
pulling down all the right IP information?  Can you see all the other
machines on your LAN?  There have been some issues in the past with
distributions using bugged version of DHCP.  I'd suggest trying a static
IP and making sure you have the correct information in there and giving
it a try.
