you can setup a bridge to do that, but the firewall rules are a little 
trickier (at least, most of the linux firewall packages assume you're 
doing NAT).

can you disable the NAT function in the modem so your eth0 gets the 
'real' internet IP, and talks to your ISP's router as the gateway, then 
MASQ's the 192.168.1.x subnet?
