I have given an old 386 box to a married couple friends of mine. It was
installed with SmoothWall GPL about 2 years ago (18 months?), and the
only things I'd change about it if I could be bothered would be
upgrading to EXT3, and installing sshd so I can connect remotely to do
preventative maintenance remotely.
Since there are no ports open on the outside, there's very little chance
of the box being compromised.
I've been working on a Debian-based box with webmin and a couple of
scripts that I've pared down from the SmoothWall installation (the ones
responsible for doing the dial-up/disconnect from a web page).
