[vox-tech] Setting up an old box as a Router/Server/Firewall?

Ok, I've got an old 486 sitting in my
closet that I got from my dad a while
ago, intending to set it up as a linux
based server/bridging firewall. It has
2 NICs so I was hoping to set up some
routing software and whatnot to allow
me to run a webserver and mail server
on the 486 while still being able to
use games and whatnot that need to act
accept incoming connections on my main
box. My prefered setup for dealing with
incoming connections on eth0 is to have
a list of ports to block connections
to and a list of ports to allow incomming
connections to, and what IP on the
internal network those requests should
be directed to (or to direct it to a
server that's running localy).

Traffic to the internet from eth1 (the
internal network) should sent out to
the WAN, prefreably without a proxy.

Oh, and I do only have one internal IP.

Suggestions on what programs would be
needed to do this stuff and hints on
setting things up?

I currently have Storm installed on it,
but I have A copy on Mandrake SNF and
could get and burn any other Distro off
the net.
