Well, go ahead then. I was running FreeBSD with BIND, qmail, proftpd, 
apache on port 8800, Samba and every service that I could install from 
the ports (port forwarders, IMAP for SqurellMail etc...) on the same 
machine without any firewall (directly connected to Verizon ISP DSL 
line) for over a 6 months. Nothing happened, except that the log files 
were full of junk bots trying to exploit port 139. There are great 
tutorials on the net. You'll be up and running in a couple of hours. Of 
course, a firewall is a must. pf is great, but I'll suggest a dedicated 
machine for that. I was just playing a honey pot, unfortunately I was 
not considered of any interest. :( Time to reevaluate my marketing 
skills. :)
