I've never tried such a thing, mainly due to the restriction of disk  
space. The WRT54G(L) is fine for primary DNS, firewall, NTP, snort,  
and a few other gateway services that just require a processor with  
minimal storage/cache. If you get just one 3MB email, there goes your  
free space.

For mail, squid, file server or other resource-intensive services,  
grab a NSLU-2. You can connect a decent size external drive (such as  
the 8GB thumb drives now available) and do what you want. Or get one  
of the USB-equipped devices from the original post!
