Slashdot readers discuss this little nugget: "The people at Merilus have grabbed a PCI card, embedded Linux,
added some Ethernet ports and come up with the FireCard. The OS on the host
system can crash out, without affecting your firewall. Once installed, the
FireCard provides firewalling, routing, bandwidth management, virtual private
networking, redundant failover, intrusion detection and much more."
