In short, to Sparkes, Matt R and Fizzy I will just
say, "Yes" to most of what has been raised

Yes

Or an ADSL router for near 100 and a firewall for
however much. My smoothwall machine cost me 5 for the
motherboard, processor and ram, plus a case and
network card and a few other parts needed for the
installation only (CDROM, monitor, graphics card) that
I already had.

Imagine what other companies would charge for a
similar product.
