If you followed the instructions for loading and setting up m0n0wall,
out of the box, you should be able to get to the internet from a
workstation on the LAN side of m0n0wall. Even pings should work.

However, for getting to network shares like a network neighborhood,
these will not go through the firewall too easily. I believe network
neighborhood is broadcast traffic which gets blocked.

For your test box you would configure:
- the WAN port to a static IP available in your existing LAN
- The LAN port could be as you said /

Even in the default setup, you should be able to ping a workstation in
the network. Tr ping'n another box.

From the m0n0wall LAN side:
- can you ping the LAN IP of m0n0wall.
- can you ping the WAN IP of m0n0wall.
- can you ping your network gateway address (cisco)
