I dont see why it shouldn't work.. for all intents and purposes its like having two ip addresses.. I know that people use the multiple IP on one NIC when NATing.. and ISPs use it when they want one machine to provide hosting for more than one website, using different static IPs...
Enabling the routing shouldn't be that hard.. type start > run > services.msc
Then find the service that is called 'Routing and Remote Access' and turn it on. If that doesn't work, then try modifying this key in the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip \Parameters
subkey : "IPEnableRouter" entry ,default set to "0", change to "1".
This works to enable routing in Win2k, and XP is the same thing with a dirty green and blue start bar
Post your results, I want to know if this works as I don't have a second machine running here to test with, and I'm too lazy to install a vmware guest OS.
Just make sure that you have connectivity to both subnets you want to route between (obviously).
