Do you have just the two IP addresses, or do you have a range?

If it was me, I would be looking at purchasing something to sit in front of the SBS that can handle multiple IP addresses. You can then directly assign an IP address to each server.

You will need a router that can deal with multiple IP addresses - not all of them can.
For my clients I put in a Cisco PIX 501 as standard. A DSL modem with an Ethernet port is used to connect the PIX to the Internet. Then the PIX manages the multiple IP addresses.

As you have six, that is the easiest way to go - cut out the SBS server totally.

If you do purchase a router, make sure that you disable any DHCP server functionality that the device may have. That should be left to the SBS machine to handle.
