1 public server, 1 private server with a Cisco ASA5505 inbetween, is this hard to do?

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

not really seeing anything "interesting" there to be honest... are you maybe trying to use it transparently as a layer 2 firewall? if not then you'll need a different network on each side of the firewall, as currently you appear to only have the one.
well you're using words like "behind" and "infront" so that's suggesting a layer 3 boundary (which the asa can do, so no router, but it's two seperate networks of course)... you can use the 8 ports as a vlan capable switch too, yes.

Does the Cisco ASA5505 act as a gateway? For the server that is only connected to that, with an IP fo 10.0.0.3, would it have to have a default gateway like 10.0.0.1 to be able to connect to the Cisco ASA5505?
Or do you only need a default gateway if its going to be accessible on the internet?
I think you're getting your network terminologies a little mixed up here. a "gateway" is a layer 3 routing point - a firewall or a router, you can't buy a physical thing called a "gateway". The phrase "Default Gateway" is just a very simplistic way to refer to a route of last resort, which is also normally the first resort on a standard server.
I'm still concerned that you're only saying the 5505 has one ip, when it'll need at least 2 to be a layer 3 device.
