a P4 is overkill for a router... perhaps it would be better used 
elsehwere (e.g. as a file server/webserver/network monitoring station 
etc (see nagios)).

A cheapy DSL router would be no good.

You need to look for a broadband router.. this will give you a WAN 
ethernet port and enough LAN ports to use.

You could of course use something like ipcop (use it here, works fine 
etc) or mandrake (cue Ron) has some sort of gui thing to configure the 
firewall I believe.

Personally I use Slackware.... I can email you an iptables script which 
I use at home.. it essentially blocks everything in apart from a couple 
of ports (ssh, www, smtp, dns)
