hmmm... you're the second person to tell me this that i need the
interfaces to be on separate subnets.

my prime purpose is to have this device act as my PDC and a proxy server. 
i want all proxy request to go into one interface and have the other fetch

is there anyway to keep them on the same subnet?  i have a router that
handles the routing, so i really don't need anything else to do routing. 
i simply want all web requests to go through this server, and have it
cache web sites and to provide some sort of protection.
