For file/web and quite some other services I recommend the eisfair project .
It has a decent package and update management.
I have it running and serving Samba shares for quite some years on a -->
Pentium II 333Mhz <-- ;-)
I doubt it could be used as firewall. And if, I'd never recommend having the
firewall on the same system as the data.

If you want to have some fun, I run openwrt x86 in a xen VM on my home
server. You just have to custom compile a kernel from the svn and enable
Works great, and i get full performance out of my connection (as opposed to
my wrt54gl which would top out at 30-40Mbit/s)
