If it's a firewall you want then use OpenBSD and a second SBUS ethernet 
card.  Works, is secure, and is fairly easy to set up out of the box.  

You don't even have to give Theo-De-Rat any money because they have a 
network install disk.  Though I admit to have recently purchased the 
3.4 CDs just to get all the architectures in a local format.

Just my $0.02 worth.  ;-)

best choice for firewalls in particular.  Anything else can be done 
with NetBSD or Debian.  I use all three in-house.
