from internal hosts or just from the RH9 box?

have you turned on ip forwarding on your RH9 box?
then run sysctl -p

to clarify here:
you cannot ping the internal IP of your RH9 box, correct?

what is the default gateway on your internal hosts?
# netstat -rn
how are they connected to the RH9 box?
how have you set up the IP masquerading?
