Well that all seems OK, then. The only other thing I can think of is that the 'router_enable'="YES"' line's creating dramas. As I understand it, this'll cause /etc/rc.d/routed to attempt to launch the routing daemon specified by a 'router="..."' line, which you don't appear to have. I don't think this'd interfere with natd anyway, but I don't really understand what the hell's going on in /etc/rc.d/routed.
