Which Open Source router?

I'm going to buy a new router for home use. I would like to get familiar with dd-wrt (or another good open source router system). I only wonder what router I should buy. The price may be about €100.

1) I know about the Linksys WRT54GL. Is it possible to use the WRT54G as well? What's the better option?
2) I believe the WRT54G has more memory. Is that a limitation for the WRT54GL?
3) What other routers can be used? Pros and cons?
4) I heard about dd-wrt. Is this the only system available?
