You could try Smoothwall Express (http://community.smoothwall.org/forum/).
It's still using OpenSwan 2.4.15 and Linux 220.127.116.11, but does run on newer
hardware (ICH7 chipset, for example), but not the newest.
Or you can try the development/testing version I ginned up
(http://community.smoothwall.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=91) that greatly
modernizes most of the software in Smoothwall. Roadster (the testing version)
is running Linux 2.6.32 and OpenSwan 2.6.28 (or so). It runs great on a
6-port, 17W, Lanner FW-7530-A. Phaeton (the development version) is running
Linus 2.6.32 and will soon be running OpenSwan 2.6.32 (as soon as I
straighten out the mess I made of my local GIT repo). One of the guys testing
it says he's been hammering the four used ports at 2Gb/s (full duplex) for
months and the system uses less than 20W.
