no, I told you to leave it as is with one subnet on OPT1 and one on
OPT2. Though bridging will work too.

You don't bind any IP's to that interface, you bind them to the Cisco.
m0n0wall is invisible in that setup. Like this -

they'll still have a gateway IP on their subnet, it'll just be on the
Cisco if you're bridging.
Since you have a sufficient number of interfaces, unless you really
need both subnets on the same broadcast domain, you would be better
off using OPT1 and OPT2.
