If this isn't the right place to ask this question then I apologise.

I've just installed a Net BSD 1.5.2 system into some i386 hardware.  My
intention is to use it as a firewall.  I'm thinking that it might be a
good idea to harden the installation with chroot and the other thing I'd
like to know about is ....  is there such a thing as a hardening script
for Net BSD ?

I think what I'm saying is ... is it possible to do this and of so is
there an FAQ or man page that I can have a look at.

Thank you
