Can you scrounge an old PC?  You only need 16MB RAM and a
500MB HDD for a great masquerading firewall.  (A great
reason to take it off of your box: if you shut your box down
(for what *ever* reason), others can still access the web.)

If you can find 2 ISA NICs, then a 486 is all you need,
or if a Pentium/K6/Cyrix, then you can use the eth1 from
your current box.  (A pentium-class box is more likely to 
be bootable off CD, and that's a big plus.)
