Well, if your place of business will buy you a copy of their firewall, that will enhance your ability to support the tool, making this whole thread marginally on-topic. :-) Otherwise, your idea is perfect; Linux or OpenBSD, whichever you're more comfortable with, will give you the most flexibility, and Solaris x86 might work but will be dog-slow and unless you have a lot of RAM, completely unusuable.
