N00b looking for help

Im a :: @ Linux... I have a future Router box (firewall/router) on my desk, I was thinking of installing Mandrake (I love mandrake even though I use Debian...) because it has the option of web/ftp/firewall/blablabla, but not just that, Im very familiar with Mandrake and it does the job so I was thinking, since the PC is so old, I need a USB card to use the Modem, would mdk detect the usb card, I know it detects the modem since I got the drivers, but what about usb?
thank you

I think so

Mandy also has a distro for firewalling and routing/server that I read some nice reviews about. I have it just don't have a need for it. Got a nice graphical install. About 200 Megs for the download.

since the PC is so old
Just mentionning mandrake does not run on anything under a pentium. So if you are using a 486 dont waste time, use another distro!!
