actually did this exact move about 3 months ago - but only cos I inherited the 
ipcop systems and didnt want to add yet another standalone *nix 
firewall/router OS to my repertoire.  

No major issues. ipcop I assume has better support for establishing a 
base-line of rules (ie lan->DMZ and DMZ->WAN rules are probably automatically 
established moreso then they are in monowall, but this makes sense as the 
monowall "opt" interface is more generic then IPCop) - but even so, I found 
the firewall rules GUI and NAT GUI in monowall a lot easier to use then 
ipcop. But I didnt really make an effort to learn ipcop either. 

I actually set up the config on another machine, then just stuck the CD in the 
ipcop drive and rebooted it with the floppy. something like 1 minute downtime 
in the end.
