This is a Good Thing, but ideally I would NOT choose my most basic security
device (i.e. gateway/firewall) as a platform on which to learn and experiment.
It is possible to make catastrophic mistakes on any OS and firewall platform,
but some are easier to screw up than others, PIX and IPTables come to mind...
If you have the luxury, learn on something non critical. :-)
