I was thinking of putting up my old Pentium 90 as firewall for my local
network at home. With about 10-30 rules for IPTABLES.
But what I wonder thou is if a P90 is suffident for network shaping, and how
much ram I probably would need.
The network shaping would be a simple one with 2 layers
Aswell, what distro should I preferable use, or even not linux?
I have no expercience within networkshaping, so any tips around there would
be nice too

Computer B-D shall have even access to the net and form a group that shall
have even access to the net as computer A (server)
[comp A] 50 ~ 50 [group B]
[comp B to D] (evenly split)
computer B-D will not constaty be running
possibly will the firewall have 3 network cards [uplink], [direct link to
comp A] and [switch to computer B-D]
or eventuelly will comp A be connected to the switch aswell
computer A-D will probably all run any type of windows
