I guess that a machine with the ip 192.168.0.5 would have the netmask of
255.255.255.0, and a network address of 192.168.0.0. The netmask, when
applied to the IP does show that 192.168.0.0 is correct, and should work
HOWEVER there is the possibility for confusion, and it looks odd, so
thats a good enough reason to avoid 0 ranges :)

Don't bother - just move the 192.168.0.x/24 to 192.168.2.0/24
BTW the answer would be to subnet, to use 0-127 on one side and 128-255
on the other side, with a netmask of 255.255.255.127
