    Best distro to use for my situation

    I have an old 133 mhz computer with a gig hard drive just sitting in my room and I got to thinking that I either want to turn it into a firewall or a honeypot.

    I got it set up on the DMZ (currently running WIN98) but I want to go Linux or BSD on it

    In your peoples opinion what is the best distro of linux or to use with a gig hard drive and 80mb ram to use for a firewall or honeypot..

    Or I am not sure would any of the open or free BSD's work good for this task and do i have enough space to use them.

    Just looking for opinions so I can do some research and have my own,

    Thanks

    I would say go for a firewall, have a look at www.devil-linux.org no hard disk needed. It runs of a live cd, and the iptables rules are saves on a floopy. I run this firewall, and i love it.


    Cheers.

    http://www.openbsd.org

    OpenBSD is also another good distro you may wanna look at.

    Will a gig be enough space?
