Thanks, once again, to everyone who responded to my routing problem. These
are the people who sent me info after my first summary.
I certainly got an education about routing and netmasks. The solution (as
you all know already) was to use the same netmask (255.255.255.0)
on both interfaces and run the proxyarpd on the side connected to the rest
of our 'flat' Class B network. Adding a default route to this same interface
enabled the gateway and its clients to see all of the rest of the
machines in our network and beyond.
I guess this still violates the 'only one netmask per network rule' since these
are the only machines not using the default netmask. I don't see any way of
getting around this until/unless the whole campus is subnetted. There are
many, many machines here that can't handle subnetting.
