Go to sourceforge.net and search for Firewall floppy. You will get lots
of already stripped down versions. You can run these firewalls from a
floppy and also from a hard drive if you want to enable logging.
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.
