1:1 NAT is probably what you're looking for. Or if they have public IPs,
you can make do without NAT at all (i.e. turn it off).

Connect all of them to a switch, hook up m0n0wall to it, set up the subnet
mask/default gateway on all of your servers correctly, then set up BIND on
one of your servers or use the DNS forwarder in m0n0wall to map host names
to IP addresses... Something like that should do the trick.
