Brand new to Linux.
Can someone please recommend a good linux firewall distro.
I need a firewall distro that supports pcmcia cards.
I want to install a linux firewall on an old laptop.

Hardware is
Dell latitude cp M233ST laptop
Pentium MMX

2 pcmcia cards (Belkin 32bit cardbus network cards)

Does IPCOP recognize and support 32bit pcmcia cardbus network cards?
It does not state that on the ipcop website.
I tried to install smoothwall and it did not support those cards...
also was looking at m0nowall....but not sure if that supports those cards either....??
