Hello Ryan,

The short answer is no. Broadcasts are not routable. There are some hacks
around to make them routable though, but this is generally a bad idea. I'm
not quite sure what you are trying to do though, do you want to netboot the
clients on your /24 net from the mac box? Then it's probably not that hard
to hand out the appropriate options from the m0n0wall dhcp server.
