Default Networking: Routing / subnet question

Hi all, please excuse this basic question. (below runs on Centos5, no gui)

I'm using zoneminder with IP cameras, and found they put an immense strain on the local network (192.168.1.x). I rigged up a secondary router (10.0.1.x) for the cameras, and installed a second NIC on my camera server.

My intention was to have the server "bridge" the connections via a route. The only way i was able to gain connectivity from computers on the 192 side was this:
In the second NIC setup, i had to enter as the gateway (as opposed to, which is what my secondary router lives as).

What I found was that I had successfully reduced the load on my primary network, but ZM performance was extremely slow.

Here's my question: With my setup, is all traffic still routing from the 10.0.1.x network, through the router, and then to zoneminder?

Is there a better way I can set this up? I like the idea of having the cameras on their own router for troubleshooting and security purposes.

And again, please excuse my rudimentary question.
Thanks in advance.
