Well, personally I'd stick with OpenBSD. But that's just my personal opinion. I haven't tried these distros, but I have read many good things about Smoothwall, so I'd say that's a good choise if you don't want all the hassle that automatically comes with OpenBSD. (Even though it's a superior system. Rant rant rant).
And to be completely honest, a burnable CD costs next to nothing. It doesn't hurt trying both of them for a few days..

Subject: [CLUG] Smoothwall or IPCop
I have an OpenBSD firewall/router here but I want to set up something easier
to work with: easy to install and upgrade, nice web-based interface to the
firewall and NAT, etc. Smoothwall looks nice and IPCop looks ugly, but
finish probably isn't the best factor to decide on, so any recommendations?
