I'm downloading it as we speak (and Mandrake 8 for the craic)
I'm a glutton for punishment.
There is a patch for ISDN, so it looks like this is the best solution.
Here's hoping it comes with squid.

I've set one up on my home LAN using an elderly P133 and I installed
Smoothwall Linux on it. Its a 20Mb ISO download and has everything
you need for a dial up box (Its based on VA Linux 6.2 which is basically
RedHat) Installation was a doddle although I'm not sure about ISDN support
but you might want to check out http://www.smoothwall.org
Hope it helps.

Firewall/dialup box should always be a separate box from the
web/mail/samba servers... 486 should be good enough for most FW tasks...
I'm not saying you can't secure everything on one box.. but it is a
nightmare... last place I did this I use a 486DX33 to route mail and
firewall, and an internal server to the processing mail/samba etc..
