The one you HAVE to try at some point is OpenWRT.
This one feels more like a Linux distro. Uses the ipkg
system for adding packages, no GUI, formats the excess
flash as a filesystem. On a GS unit you get about 5-6 megs
left for adding packages. Want to run tcpdump, no problem
there's a package for that. Want to fiddle with the VLAN's
and have different ports be different networks, no problems
standard Linux vconfig, etc. Want to change how things
get started up? Poke around in /etc/init.d/
