    Does it have to be Windows? You could dualboot a linux distro, which would be better suited, like IPFire

    Not needed and I can use LInux if wanted.

    jk22, I just got actively back on...yes, I see nothing wrong with posting X on more than one forum -- I just wanted to alert you to the fact that some boards frown on such -- again, I think posting in more than one board is a good idea
