Re: [K12OSN] Firewall

Unless you're set on using RH 8.0, might I suggest Mandrakes new Multi

Available for download at:


There are are few other distributions that might be worth checking into for
a dedicated firewall; smoothwall, trustix, etc...

I think you'll find Mandrakes MNF a comprehensive solution though.  The
install was totally painless...
