I think i understand a little better now. I guess i was a bit confused
because i didn't read only m0n0wall's bridge funcionality but also bridge(4)
in freebsd and linux bridging. I made some assumptions how things should be

I'm not connecting TWO sides of bridge to the same switch. I never said
that, whoever got that idea - it's wrong. I'm using your scheme, only my
network behind "OPT1" is /25.
My problem was LAN, that i kept conected to same switch as OPT1 for the sake
of administering switch and checking logs from any computer behind firewall.

In two words: "bridged firewall". That's all. I usualy do it by hand and it
works, but right now i'm in need of webgui ;). From all the firewalls on PC
box i found and tryed, m0n0wall comes closest to this..
And it should be possible with only 2 interfaces so i don't see why bridging
LAN with WAN would be such a big problem.. .I'll go into that after i make
