I use a similar setup at work to split a range of 64 ip adresses into
multiple demilitarized zones. I did not choose to use subnetting, as i
wanted to move hosts easily between DMZs without changing their
IP-Address. The setting you want is possible if you use a technique
called "proxy arp".
I also suggest you use the shoreline firewall script to setup your
firewalling and routing, instead of the SuSEfirewall script. It is easy
to setup, even for complex settings (i dont want to start a flamewar,
but shorewall is much more suited for complicated settings than
SuSEfirewall IMHO). You can configure proxy arp very easily there.

In any case, i suggest you read the following about proxy arp:
The second has an example, it should be easy to customize it to your needs.
