Thanks to everyones response on this question.  Basically, the problem 
was that I had assigned both the nics on Host A IP addresses on the same 
network.  I fixed this with assigning the U5's 192.168.1.X and eth0 as and turned on ip forwarding on Host A.  Everything seems to 
be working as expected now.

Thanks again,
Simran H.
