Re: modifying boot floppies to do a firewall only install.
There are lots of single-floppy or otherwise light Linux distros
that do firewalling/NATting/etc. Most of them don't have an
easy way to update the installed software other than getting
a new image and they typically don't have things like portsentry
and extenisve logging. I'm thinking that it shouldn't be too difficult
to make an install profile for people who want a little more than
what the single-sloppy versions can provide and want to avoid
commercial addons like NetMax. I don't want to go to the effort
of starting from scratch tho if someone out there is already
doing it for stock Debian.
