Why not setup IPCop as a router (pass everything) and then connect the
LAN (do they still call it the "green" interface) to the m0n0wall's WAN?
This may require multiple IPs or some tricky NATing.
I do not think you will be able to get around the fact that the m0n0wall
DHCP will give out itself as the gateway address. (with out "HACKING" it
- if the tool does not work it is not the right tool)
