I think you're going about this in the wrong way. As far as I
understand, the only reason you are using the linux box is to join 2
subnets. Surely, then, the best option would be to run a WINS server,
make sure all your machines pn both subnets can see the WINS server, and
do use it for lookups. Then you can log into the domain directly.

As long as TCP/IP works between the subnets (ie you can ping the WINS
server from any machine) WINS should help you with this.
