another option is a Linux or even Windows install as the base OS, then 
run m0n0 and AstLinux in two separate VMs. Now, *that* is ugly, but 
technically, it works and uses only one machine :)

the OP, however, is probably better off slapping a CD drive and a floppy 
drive into any old Intel box, add a couple NICs, and call it a day - or 
a dedicated firewall.
