[html email sucks by the way]

There isn't really much to it, since NetBSD is fairly secure by 
default.  Make sure you apply the latest security patches (especially 
if you aren't using -current), and disable all services but ssh, 
since this is going to be a firewall.  And of course don't give out 
user accounts on your firewall.  After that you should be set.
