You'd have to make your own image, though that isn't extremely
difficult if you have a FreeBSD system (and if not, you can download a
6.1 virtual machine for VMware Player if nothing else).

Just grab workon.sh from http://chrisbuechler.com/m0n0wall/downloads/
chmod +x workon.sh
./workon.sh <image-filename>

then make your changes and type 'exit' and it'll roll your image back
up.  then you can flash your card, or use the upgrade firmware to load
your new image.

One thought on accomplishing this, to some extent at least, without
hacking the image is to give the machines distinct hostnames.  The
hostname shows up in the page title on every page, and that showing on
the tab I'm using in Firefox has really helped nearly eliminate this
confusion for me.  It can get a little crazy when you have several up
at once though.
