Company 1 has a router, switch, and connects to a shared switch which the T-1 modem connects to.
Company 2 has a router, and has the switch that the T-1 connects to.

I need to seperate these two networks by doing the following:

T-1 Modem----connect to the Symantec 320-Firewall----

Company1----connect its router to the firewall-----Company2------connect it to the firewall.

What configuration options do I need to put into place to make this configuration work?

You would want some sort of separation between the two Company's.  You want to make things traverse the firewall when going from one company to another.

If the firewall has DMZ ports then putting the two companies on separate ones with access-lists to prevent access from one to the other would suffice.

Change control on the Firewall must be rock-solid.  Don't want a change made to the firewall for company 1 to affect company 2.  Personally, I'd rather each company have their own firewall.
