Hi Danny,

I've build a book-size PC with celeron 2.4g, 256mb ram and sandisk
256mb CF for my co-loc firewall. It's protecting 6 multi-purpose
servers and my local bandwidth  around 60mbps, so I need to build a PC
instead of using embedded PC board.

As I remember, someone on this list is running m0n0wall on dual xeon
for their filtering and vpn.
