One way you could do this to add an explicit route for on all
the other machines on your home network - "/sbin/route add host gw", which will make them send all the traffic
to stoneboat via matt.

However, an easier way is to use something called proxy ARP. As far as
your home network is concerned, matt pretends to be stoneboat, but when it
gets traffic for stoneboat it knows where to send it. On matt, just run
"/sbin/arp -i eth0 -Ds eth0 pub". Then, when any other
computer on the network is looking for, matt will answer
saying "it's here", the traffic will be sent to matt which will then route
it on.
