So you proved that there was nothing wrong with the routing within

This should be fine, but if there's any doubt about the firewall being
involved, you can always enable logging.

Which are at best useless.  You don't need static routes for
directly-connected addresses.

Most likely it's the routing on the *other* machines that's the issue.  If
they don't have the m0n0wall as the default gateway, then they need to
have it configured as a route to the other subnet.
