Let me be a little more clear, then. :)

Klaus is doing it in series.  You go through one first, and then the 
other.  If one fails, all fails, unless you physically change things.

I am saying go through one OR the other.  Example...

Shophos LAN
m0n0wall LAN
Plug both into the same switch to your LAN.

Sophos WAN
M0n0wall WAN
Plug both into the same switch on your WAN from ISP.

Run DHCP on Sophos only.  DHCP clients see Sophos as gateway, and all 
devices on LAN. (Including m0n0wall)  For servers with Static IPs, point 
them at m0n0wall.  They will use m0n0wall as a gateway, and still see 
everything on the LAN, including the sophos.  Both routers are reachable 
from the outside.
