Yes, because that up there contains exactly *one* IP address - so I'd hardly 
call that "blocks".

I have no idea what you are trying to tell me - you cannot "subnet out" one
IP address to "your PIX firewall".

And hadn't you snipped what I wrote, you could have seen that it is impossible
to have with a netmask of with being
the network address, as that IP address with that network mask can only be an
address in an address range from to with .0 being
the network and .31 being the broadcast address.
