I'm running a 486 75MHz with 16M and 800M disk, 3 NE2000 NICs.  It runs a
22 rule set and NAT. (plus qmail, ssh, etc)  You could probably just find
this kind of hardware behind a computer store.  The machine never pages,
never drops under 90% idle cpu time.  My connection is a 300K down/128K up
DSL line.
