I am looking for hints and suggestions to following situation:

A customer has two permanent internet connections, the first is a 
cable modem with one fixed IP, a server attached to it with a 
second network card to do nat for one workstation. The second is a 
2MBit SDSL line with 16 IPs and about 5 servers on it.

I wanted to have an internal connection to all these machines, so I 
thought the best way is to hook the second interface of the single 
server and the workstation and the 5 servers and the SDSL router 
to the same switch and give the 5 servers a second IP from the 
reserved range in the same subnet as the workstation and the 
second interface of the single server. That way they could internally 
reach each other without having to loosen the IP filter rules on the 
single server and the SDSL router.

Anything I missed or should be aware of?
