fng> I've ordered from linitx before (built a few miniitx boxes) and they were always good for turn around. Never had any need to try out returning stuff though so YMMV
@FN-GM: I've used LinITX a couple of times... it was an EduGeek member that put me on to them.
Did you also see some of the options at LinITX.com - Firewalls for adding additional storage (e.g. Smoothie web cache) or purely so you can have 8 NICs!
Im looking at this one - LinITX.com - FX5420 AMD LX-800 4 NIC Firewall/Router Platform
With the mod how hard will it be to get smoothie on this do you think?
Also i am likely to run into any problems if the logs are doing allot of read & write?

i still would personally just get a basic cable router/firewall for £30
@FN-GM: Don't know what mod you are talking about but if you just stick a small hard disk in there reads/writes should not be a problem plus you should give yourself a nice webcache.
@Midget: The drawback with hacking a Linksys router is that you have a much lower powered CPU and you don't have the ability to add a hard disk for web caching.
where would i put the hard disk it would just be loose in there
Anymore input from anyone else please?
Smoothie usually OK on Compact Flash. We have it sunning on some nice little fanless geodes in the office - remind me in January and I'll fish out a link.
Worth pointing out we had to stick grub on instead of lilo to make it boot - so not *easy* but not that tough New smoothies (Express4 and new commercial stuff) will be grub as standard.
oooo when will we expect to see the new version?
