    Personally, I think you'd be better off using a normal distro and setting those things up yourself - but thats just my opinion.

    At the risk of sounding repetetive, I'd have to agree...

    It's a learning experience, setting all that stuff up yourself, believe me it can take a while, but after you set it all up yourself, and it *works* - well the sense of satisfaction is just amazing!

    The ability to do something yourself instead of using preconfigured stuff opens up so many more possibilities!

    Reading the `man pages' and following How-To's on this sort of thing is extremely valuable and is good for sheding your newbiehood. This is a cool setup, but I still recommend that you learn to do it the Linux Hacker way. (Linux Hacker way = read the man pages and how-to's and gain from the experience )

    Yep. Nothing teaches you the ins and outs of port-based firewalling than the great roaring tale that is the iptables/netfilter HOWTO...
