    Suggestion for firewall to replace our aging cisco pix 501

    Now i have a spare GL580 that i can use, but it has no drives and i think the controller has gone boom
    So what im thinking is along the lines of using it for running a firewall off a linux usb distro

    i have looked at Ipcop smoothwall and m0n0wall
    Any recommendations on which way i should start.

    We have a Smoothwall UTM device I won't bother you with the usual glowing recommendation for Smoothwall as if you read through the forums you'll see plenty of it!
