You're better off getting a router distro.
Screw untangle that is for sissies and it eats ram.
Use manly pfsense like me.

Here is the setup of my servers that I have. I would greatly appreciate any configurations you all recommend. I have two servers...

First Box(1U):
Two Intel Xeon 2.8Ghz(Single Cores)
3GB DDR ECC REG
Two 89GB 15K SCSI Drives
Two Onboard Gigabit LAN Ports
Fiber Channel Card

Second Box(2U):
Two Intel Xeon 3.2Ghz(Dual Cores)
4GB DDR ECC REG
Six 300GB 10K SCSI Drives
Two Onboard Gigabit LAN Ports
Two Gigabit LAN Ports on a PCI Card

I really want the second box to be a storage/game server for obvious reasons and I was thinking about putting the first box as my DHCP/Firewall server. However, the 2U box is the one with the second LAN Card in it. What do you all recommend?
Is this for home?
Dedicating one of those boxes for routing would be way overkill and just a waste of power. I'd say combine hosting games and routing into one box. If you must run Windows to host games virtualize it. Everything else can run on Linux.

I'm sure the contents of your actual post was relevant also but I was too distracted by your sig. Made me laugh.
