I would get one of the Linux distributions that are built to be a secure
firewall. Since they are designed as a firewall, they do not contain all
the stuff that does not belong on a firewall server, desktop apps and the
like. They also come with tools to help configure and manage the firewall.

Some that seem to be good:
