I am not sure how easy it is to confugure iptables/ipchains within Coyote
Linux, since we are using a copy of it merely as a router,  but Coyote
runs of a simple boot floppy with no hard disc required.   Thus, you should
be able to use any old PC with very modest horse-power, a modest amount of
memory, a cheap old vga card and no hard disc.  Keyboard still needed I
presume, but you may well be able to get away without an attached screen,
once you have the thing running properly and doing what you want.
If the bios is suitably set up, it should reboot itself after a power-
failure, providing the floppy is left in the drive.
