Just as you cannot dynamically assign an IP to the LAN interface you
cannot dynamically assign an IP to the optional interfaces (OPTn). The
m0n0wall will act as the gateway for the subnet attached to internal
interfaces (LAN and OPTn). Gateways generally do not have dynamic

This assumes that you are not bridging your OPTn interface. If you are
bridging your OPTn to WAN or LAN it will not be assigned an IP.

P.S. Linux knowledge is not needed for m0n0wall, but, IP and routing
knowledge is helpful.
