Do tell. I tried ipcop and sme but the need for 2 nics through me and I tried to get dhcrelay to work in ipcop, but I'm not good enough with IPTables to not screw it up.

The idea for two NIC's is that it sits at the choke point of your network
and becomes the firewall/proxy/content filter (and DHCP server if you
wish).  You can also have it tag your SPAM and filter all traffic with
anti-virus.  One NIC is the external interface going to the Internet and
the other is the internal interface going to the LAN.  Cool thing is...you
get rock-solid security and it's next to impossible to bypass.  I know of
a lot of schools who have used E-Smith/SME to get rid of SonicWalls.
