I've got a debian box doing bridgeing firewalling with a patched 2.4.18

the users didn't even notice it going in until they realised that their 
zonealarm's had stoppped squawking about sniffers.

fast network going through an old (pII) box.

it was a little bleeding edge when we implemented but it's been rock solid.


    Not yet is the spirit of that pristine valour
    extinct in you, when girt with steel and lofty flames
    once we fought against the empire of heaven.
    We were -- that I will not deny -- vanquished in that conflict:
    yet the great intention was not lacking in nobility.
    Something or other gave Him victory: to us remained
    the glory of a dauntless daring.
    And even if my troop fell thence vanquished,
    yet to have attempted a lofty enterprise is still a trophy.

Innocents) by Giambattista Marino (1569-1625)
