Why all these old packages? Do you use bo? I don't think this is a good idea
for a firewall.

Why do you need all these development packages? Okay, if you want to compile
your own kernel you need some, but not dpkg-dev, gdb and electric-fence.

Besides, 2.0.30 is vulnerable by a teardrop attack.

Same question again: Why this?
