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.
