smoothwall questions


i use cable internet. i have an older 166 mhz system that i want to turn into a firewall/router for my house. i looked into smoothwall and was pretty intrigued. the thing i want to know is can u make it into a wireless router? i know, u can just buy one of those, but i have no use for the comp and would really like to try out smoothwall. also, can u use smoothwall as a print server? what about as a file server? any help would be awesome.

Have you looked at clarkconnect? It seems to have most of the things you want built in.

As long as it is not used for commercial then you don't have to pay for it. The home version is here..

It has a version of apt for rpm already builtin so if you ssh into the box after it is set up you can add pretty much anything you want.
