Angry Routing question virtual machines

Hi, I've searched this forum extensively but didn't find an answer to my question(s):

My setup:
router/adsl modem is on ip 10.0.0.11/8 (has dns server)
My main linux box (ubuntu 5.10 with 2.6.16-suspend2 kernel) is on ip 10.0.0.4 called lexo
My vmware vm (under main box):
debian etch on ip 192.168.0.2

I've added a virtual ip for 10.0.0.4 of 192.168.0.1 by doing the follwing:
Code:
ifconfig eth0:0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
Output of:
Code:

OK. But routing seems to not work properly:
Code:
etch:~# ping -c 3 10.0.0.11
PING 10.0.0.11 (10.0.0.11) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 192.168.0.1: icmp_seq=1 Redirect Host(New nexthop: 10.0.0.11)
From 192.168.0.1: icmp_seq=4 Redirect Host(New nexthop: 10.0.0.11)
From 192.168.0.1: icmp_seq=10 Redirect Host(New nexthop: 10.0.0.11)

--- 10.0.0.11 ping statistics ---
28 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 27004ms
and when I do:
Code:
etch:~# ping -c 1 google.com
ping: unknown host google.com
But dns is working on the (real) router/adsl modem and I can ping google.com from lexo.

I just want to understand how routing works in unix. Am I on the right track? Is this problem maybe because I'm using everything virtually (virtual ip vmware vms etc.)? It should still work shouldn't it? What is wrong? I thought this would be the simplest setup, but it turns out to be not working. If you need any more outputs, please tell me so. Thanks in advance :-).

Or is it not working because eth0 on lexo is shared and has the same MAC address??

Does anyone know what the vmnet settings (routing table) are for and why they are in a different subnet? Is that maybe the problem? Can I just delete them or are they important? How is it in Xen?
