I just use GNU/Linux, and I know there are mini-distros specially suited
for router/proxy/firewall, some of them in just a couple of 1.4M disks.

We have used a '486 DX2 66MHz, 16Mbytes with a RedHat derivate
(Conectiva) for firewall ("ipchains"), ISP dialing through an 56k modem
("diald" and "pppd"), internet proxy ("squid"), internal e-mail server
("sendmail"), external e-mail fetching ("fetchmail" with "AMAVIS"
antivirus and "procmail") and forwarding (also "sendmail"), a small
intranet ("apache") and printer server / file repository ("samba"). We
were like 20 users at that time. Now we have a P233 (the old '486 is
FUBAR after so many years of continuous usage) doing less things working
just fine for a couple of years. BTW, I am not the Linux guru here, all
that primary huge work was done by a friend (at the beginning he made
something wrong with the kernel configuration and there were a "kernel
panic"; even in this condition, it generated a log of the event, built
an e-mail for him, dialed up the modem, and sent that message! ).

Why do you look for BSD?

Or NetBSD?....

I've installed OpenBSD, but just havent gotten down to finishing getting all
the config done for the 2 Ethernet cards, the portmapper, and the NAT.

Friend told me it was really good for what I'm trying to do.  Also, OpenBSD
is proactively secure.  It comes completely secure, and yoou have to do
configuration to actually remove any of the security, rather than the other
way around, which is the common methodology.
