Or setup VLAN on one switch as said earlier.

A sugggestion: If you just want firewalling between a few computers or a
few groups of computers in the same subnet, how about bridging?

Bridge e.g. LAN, OPT1 and OPT2. They'll all use the same subnet,
DHCP-server and so on - but you'll have the possibility of setting up
firewalling between them.
AFAIK there's no limit to how many interfaces you can bridge. So you can
basically have as many transparently separated groups as you have inside
interfaces.
Only problem is that you'll need a switch for each group.

One last thing...

If I were to setup separate VLANs on our switch would the traffic then 
get routed through m0n0?

Thanks,
