512M RAM, and build a Bastion Host. (Cost << $3k) You can
do with FreeBSD or OpenBSD, but not LINUX. Sorry but
LINUX s implementation of packet filtering is way to
venerable. If you are really into hacking a STRONG Bastion,
try building a BPF based filter. If you dont know what BPF is
then move on

One interface to your router/Open-DMZ and the other to your
Private or Managed DMZ

Run IPFW on both interfaces to filter IN only that traffic which
you need.

Setup standard IP and SMURF filters on the router. NIX FW
on you Gateway Routers!
