In addition to MOnOwall, Smoothwall and IPCOP also have worked out well for me as has GnatBox Light from GTA.ysgdhio <ysgdhio@...>

m0n0wall is great; I recommend it highly. You probably don't need all
of those 15 minutes, unless you count putting the hardware together.
I'm running mine off a compact flash "drive", but to try it out you
only need a CDROM drive (for the m0n0wall software) and a floppy drive
(to store your settings). The web interface is, in my humble opinion,
better than what you get with most commercial router/firewall
Did we mention that m0n0wall is free?
