Short answer: no. m0n0wall is not an application; it's an appliance. 
This means that it cannot share the same hardware with others - it wants 
the machine all for itself.
Longer answer (but just a bit): yes. Of course, you'll have to use Xen 
(with a supported CPU) or VMware (which is now free-as-in-beer) in order 
to create a virtual environment in which to install m0n0wall. If you 
know nothing about virtualization, Google is your friend...
My final answer: It's not trivial, but it's possible; you being able to 
do it or not depends mainly on your skills. Virtualization is fun. Try it.
