I can't remember an option in Checkpoint to do transparent or bridge firewall.
Cisco PIX (at least the FWSM blade, not yet checked for the same in PIX 7) has a functionnality called transparent firewall. you can then put access-list based on IP or MAC.
OpenBSD can also do it, as well as Linux.
If this is a intensively used server, I would advice switching to a *nix variant and not to Windows, which may show its limits "at peak".
Thanks for the recommendations. It is not a heavily used server.
