I got the firewall computer kernel to compile, so now I can finish setting it up. Yeah! I ended up putting the 512Mb DIMM from my main PC in it so that it wouldn’t have any excuse that it didn’t have enough memory.
I’ve got most of the programs installed. Just have to set their settings so that it can work on the network here. The nice thing is that I have generally worked through all the major setup bugs on my other computer. I only have to copy stuff from one to the other.
All I have to do now is find time to finish it up, and then a place to put it.
