I don't know anything about Linux, but I presume you want something
like multiple subnets on the LAN side of m0n0wall, using multiple LAN
IP's on m0n0wall?  That's not supported (via the GUI, google 'ifconfig
alias site:m0n0.ch' to find unsupported alternatives that may or may
not work), and is strongly recommended against as it's poor network
design to put multiple IP subnets on a single broadcast domain.  You
can do that properly using multiple broadcast domains either via
802.1Q VLAN's, or multiple interfaces and multiple switches.
