I don't know about m0n0wall but we run up to 8(802.11b/g/a) radios in a
single pc and they work very well. Some are AP's and some are clients.
The trick is to have external antenna and control the channels. Most
WISP use some form of this to build nodes on their network. I would be
glad to help anyone that wants to do this.

just two comments.
1 - I wouldn't rely on an unmaintained old beta version for anything
2 - multiple wireless cards in one box is a very bad idea, if it would
even work at all. See http://www.netgate.com/zz_faq.php#67
While it works for some, it's not guaranteed nor engineered to work
that way and if things go bad, you might not be able to fix it.
