Pix external to other firewalls

Our company presently has a symantec firewall. It is planning to introduce an additional Linux firewall. The two fierewalls should work in load balancing fashion. The company would like to introduce a PIX device that would be external to the two firewalls and directly connected to the router of ISP. The PIX is intended as the first entry point for all incoming traffic. As an example when it receive http requests for 2 servers it would direct a request for server A to the Linux firewall and requests directed to server B to the symantec firewall. How can I acheive this goal? Is this solution plausible? Any suggestion and config examples are welcome.

Re: Pix external to other firewalls

yes, this can be done with two static commands. each static will translate one server address, you then need to configure the symantec firewall to respond to one translated address and the linux to respond to the other address.
