In principal yes you can do this type of thing. You'll have to enable
ipforwarding on the gateway machine as a minimum.

Can you provide more information about your networking setup - ip addresses
and subnet masks, with an ascii drawing as well would help if you think it
relevant :-), then we can provide detailed answers :-)
