Just thought I'd take the opportunity to comment about KDE3... as 
pretty as it is, it's still a little bloated :)

A nice features of newer systems is WOL - if you can get it working.  
In theory, you'd be able to make the gateway box turn on on demand, 
then shut it down after use - without touching the hardware yourself 
:).  That way you don't waste power, and never have to worry about DOS 
attacks in your absence costing you money due to Telstra's "Unlimited 
Credit/Overcommittment" policy. But I digress.
