I use ClarkConnect for just such purposes. Once installed, you can run it headless, and connect either with SSH or through a web-browser.

IPCOP. basicaly you boot with the CD in the drive, wait, reboot the system without the CD and you are set for a basic firewall/NAT router ready to go.

for advanced configuration its all there too.

enjoy.

It's a standard bootable CD image.

There is a boot floppy available on the same page. You can use it to install from the internet. It might also support installing from CD, I don't remember.
