Holy cow. Why didn't I download this 10 minutes after your KWLUG
presentation? 

No doubt I'm going to run into roadblocks. But at this point it looks
like I am kicking IPCop to the curb. (Sorry, Linux.) 

I am still curious to know how a hardware router with open firmware
would measure up. It would be nice to replace a big desktop computer
with a cute router box. But I have a feeling that Bill's comments
sbout processing limits will come into play even for our relatively
small network.
