I would like to set up a machine which has two domU vms so they can both
be used as firewall machines -- we are getting two different internet
connections and I want to firewall both of them using one machine.

What I would like to do is bind one interface in each of the domUs to
the nic and the second to a bridged device and then use iptables to
firewall each vm.

a) does anyone know if this is possible and b) does it sound like the
correct way to do this?!
