I have used Mallard before and I currently use GPL 1.0. It's very easy to set up and use. Lets do a quick run-down:

Get an old PC with 2 network cards. (the old P1 166 that I use for 20-30 PC's works great)
download the image from smoothwall's site
check that image with WinMD5 (this is imperative!) http://www.blisstonia.com/software/WinMD5/
burn the image to CD
put the CD in the PC and boot to it
The setup only takes 5 mintues and walks you through everything
when it asks about stuff you dont need (like ISDN or USB modems) just skip that part and it wont be installed
If you get stuck, let me know.

I will try this out!!

What I also need to know is how to prevent or allow users to RAS in for emails and certain FTP'ing

Please give a detailed step by step guide to this.

Thanks,

you can do port forwarding to allow external service access.

To enable port forwarding:
goto the Port Forwarding tab on the Services screen,
ehter 21 for source port,
enter the IP address of your internal FTP server,
and enter 21 for the destination port.
Note that FTP isn't the most firewall frendly protocol so be sure to read up at:

Look for FTP. Lots of other good info there too.

 The Evil-ution of Network Security Threats

What are the hacks that forever changed the security industry? To answer that question, we created an exciting new eBook that takes you on a trip through hacking history. It explores the top hacks from the 80s to 2010s, why they mattered, and how the security industry responded.

Smoothwall doesn't work as a RAS server. You will have to setup a seperate RAS server in the DMZ (orange network) and the open the ports for the services you need to access your green network.
