Install was pretty easy despite not being graphical. The only time it's a little confusing is paying close attention to which interface is which:
Red Interface --> External, ethX
Green --> Internal network, ethY
There wasin't a bootable ISO that I could find, but creating a boot floppy which then allowed a CD or network installation was just fine.
I would recommend IPCop type arrangement. I'm getting alot more of my bandwidth than I was getting with my router and fewer restarts (I was restarting EVERY day with the old LinkSys).
I was a little shocked to have had to restart IPCop after 11 days... my feeling was that probably had to do more with Telus than IPCop...
