Perhaps you need a source NAT on your desktop so that the packets can get 

If you do a tcpdump on your desktop with a 'tcpdump -n -i any port 80' 
then try to 'telnet 80' from your Zaurus, you should see the 
SYN go out to your gateway, but no SYN+ACK back.

If you try adding something like 

'iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -i ppp0 -o eth0 -j SNAT --to'

to your iptables script on your desktop, it just might work....

Good Luck!
