Seeing as you're running 5.x, you've also got the choice of PF for
firewalling. That's the OpenBSD fork of ipf with all sorts of goodies
like CARP and ALTQ added to it.  Syntax is very much like IPF, with
lots of nice touches for easily doing standard things, eg. like
antispoofing rules.  See: http://www.openbsd.org/faq/pf/ ALTQ will be
able to do all of the traffic shaping you could desire.
