Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for. I'm having a bit of trouble
debugging it, though, as I can't seem to find the zeroconf device on the
network now. Here's my config:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:11:11:b2:e6:38
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use
Iface   U     0      0        0 eth0     U     1000   0        0 eth0         UG    0      0        0 eth0         U     1000   0        0 eth0

Do you see anything wrong here? The gateway route to is used
to get out to the internet through NAT. I can remove that route, but still
can't discover my zeroconf device (it's an hdhomerun).

I *can* see the hdhomerun if a reconfigure eth0 to be a ipv4ll instead of
static, but then that breaks the rest of the network.

Any ideas or tips?
