Devil-Linux seems to be best-of-breed for combination firewall/desktop boxes. HW reqs are such that you can use whatever desktop distro you've installed to your hd (Ubuntu?), then shutdown your PC, unplug the data cables to your hd's (SATA or PATA), and then reboot to the Devil-Linux CD with the USB/floppy config info ready-to-go. Nifty! One other fw distro for combo firewall/desktop machines is m0nowall, yet Devil-Linux seems easier to use n' maintain.
