I have not tried with Bluetooth but USB. But the issues are usually the same.

1. turn of the Mac firewall or enable all services you want to see outside
2. on the Zaurus, make sure you have a default route through Bluetooth
3. copy the /etc/resolv.conf from the Mac to your Zaurus (or you won't get address resolution)

OSX kernel isn't linux, so the linux rules don't apply.

you need to enable IP forwarding on the Mac, and then turn on NAT or Masquerading on the external interface
