Hi Jerry-

I have played around with these quite a bit.  Lately I haven't had as
much time to tinker and decided I just wanted something easy to
manage.  I've been using PFSense and its worked out great.  Its based
on m0n0wall, another good option.  These are both great if you are
looking for minimal setup time.
