Multiple 3 static IP's and two web servers

I have just leased a set of 5 static IP's to configure into my network.. here was my previous setup:


the proxy would point to the correct web server depending on the HTTP header.. the problem was the proxy had to handle ALL requests. so i purchased the IP's to correct this.. only now im stuck here:

WEB-->FIREWALL-->web1 or web2

It's simply not working, i have a range of IP's: X.X.X.226 - X.X.X.230

226 is the firewall, 227, 228, 229, 230 are alias IP's

the setup:
Firewall: IPCop, IPFire and Smoothwall, no luck on any (willing to use any of the three)

I have read that this would work if I were forwarding alias IP's to servers in the DMZ only my servers are 1U's w/only 1 onboard NIC and 1 PCI NIC.. this leaves no room to setup a DMZ
any ideas???
here was the original idea that apparently doesnt work..
x.x.x.230 --80--> x.x.x.30
x.x.x.230 --53--> x.x.x.30 (TCP and UDP)
x.x.x.230 --22--> x.x.x.30
x.x.x.230 --143--> x.x.x.30
x.x.x.230 --110--> x.x.x.30
x.x.x.230 --25--> x.x.x.30
x.x.x.229 --80--> x.x.x.29
x.x.x.229 --53--> x.x.x.29 (TCP and UDP)
x.x.x.229 --22--> x.x.x.29
x.x.x.229 --143--> x.x.x.29
x.x.x.229 --110--> x.x.x.29
x.x.x.229 --25--> x.x.x.29
