You might want to consider purchasing an IDE/CompactFlash adapter and
using the image (not ISO) version of m0n0wall. This is what I do and
I love it! You can find them for $20 on the web and you computer will
recognize it as a small, standard IDE drive. Definately for the way to
go for old computers with old BIOSes. And, as a bonus, they are
completely silent. I know this might not be the solution you are
looking for, but it is something to consider. Good luck.
