The Linksys BEFSR41 and others in that line do not actually load the
software on the router. It just interacts and allows the rules from the
software to be enforced.

Chris,
   Linksys router software allows you to load additional protection (
pc-cillin and ZoneAlarm) in addition to the basic firewall protection.
Personally I don't see any added benefit.

Hmm, never seen that, have a model number?  How do they do that without
a MS 
OS?
