Wow! Beefy!

The smoothwall box I have connected to transact is also a dx4/100. It
only has 8 meg of ram, though :-) 80 meg of swap. It currently masquerades
5 boxes.

At some stage all of my machines will rotate one-to-the right and I'll
have a beefier box there, but ATM, it's doing fine. In its previous
install it was an ad-hoc redhattish system which ran my modem for a couple
of years.
