I'm a home user rather new to firewalls. I have a spare pc I want to use
as a firewall machine for our local lan of 2 workstations w/cable modem.
I'm wanting a linux/unix flavor os for the firewall system. Would I be
better off using a stripped down os that is tailored for firewall
machines or something like redhat/freebsd? Would would anyone suggestion
as a starting place to learn.

Thanks!
