smoothwall question - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I have a red hat linux system running as a server and have also tried to configure it as a router without much luck - I was thinking of using smoothwall as it seems quite easy to use on an old PC instead, but before I do that I was wondering if anyone knows if It is possible for me to install smoothwall alonside my red hat distro so I have the server working as a smoothwall router too, negating the need for the second PC. TIA as always Chris -- =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ =+=+=+=+= Chris Dean, Schools Outreach Project, Vega Science ...

    do that I was wondering if anyone knows if It is possible for me to install
    smoothwall alonside my red hat distro so I have the server working as a

    Chris the short and sweet answer to your question is NO.

    When one installs smoothwall it takes over the computer and makes it
    into a quite capable firewall. It has capabilities for VPN, Dynamic DNS,
    Intrusion detection and a number of other functions. But it will not let
    one run any other software on the same machine.
