If I recall correctly, you can do loadbalancing with DNS record.

Create an A record in the dns with two (three or x) ip's and clients will be
spreaded over those different servers via the round-robin principle. You have to
have X public IP addresses though. It's not feasable with any kind of NAT in
m0n0wall as far as I know. 

(But hey, I'm not a REAL network guru, I just pretend to be at work. ;-) )

Is this what you need ?
