Pfsense(FreeBSD based) can be an alternative, although it doesn't support
email/groupware out of the box...but it doesn't mean that it can't be done.
I've been running it on a Dell Optiplex PIII for almost 2 years without any
issue using NAT, Port Fowarding, Dual WAN(Cable and ADSL), Captive portal,
DNS Server, Snort, etc.
hope it helps.
