Hi David,

The Asus Pundit is a barebone mini PC with two PCI slots and even a PCMCIA
slot at the front. We have used it for other applications and very reliable,
some companies have them branded as all kinds of application servers, from
PABX, to wireless intrusion to VPN.

Failing that there are mini-itx boards with dual gigabit LAN on board, some
even with mini-pci slots, watchdog, multiple serial, etc. however the board
alone will cost you more than the pundit with PSU, HSF, case and board in
one small package for about 170 US$.

I have a requirement to firewall at approaching Gigabit speeds, this will
be without NAT, a very small number of firewall rules and no VPNs. I would
normally do this with High-End Nokia hardware and Checkpoint Firewall-1
however providing I can find a suitable motherboard to run this on I know
M0n0wall will provide a far more cost effective solution.

Has anybody used M0n0wall at this level? can anyone recommend suitable
hardware i.e. a motherboard with dual PCI channels one for each GBit NIC
