Dear Tech Gurus,

I was given the responsibility to setup a Linux Based Firewall.  I am
looking at either Redhat, Mandrake and Suse
on intel platform and Sparc based.

I need your opinion on the following:
1.  Which OS is considered the best suited for a firewall?
2.  What are the application/software required to be installed?
3.  What security conserns/issues I need to address?
4.  Should I use multiple processors?
5.  Any website for reference?

Any help is very much appreciated here.

Many thanks.
