My System Specs

Default

Any version of *nix but you have to be a network wallah to get that going.

Check out Astaro in parallel to Smoothwall. Astaro has a lot of the same kind of features, DNS, DHCP, proxy, anti-spam, anti-virus, blah blah blah

m0n0wall is a great distro if all you want is "router" functionality. You can boot from CF or USB and it is extremely lightweight so you can easily build a no-moving-parts system.
