OpenBSD/NetBSDOver at Raiden's Realm there is a tutorial about building an OpenBSD gateway: "A gateway is a piece of equipment that performs various networking functions, like filtering IP packets ('firewalling'), Network Address Translation ('NAT'), routing of IP packets across one or more networks ('routing'), and serving up IP addresses to clients attached to the network ('DHCP').

OpenBSD/NetBSDFlashdist is an embedded OpenBSD installer for flash disks, hard disks, and pseudo disks. It keeps the entire system mounted read-only during normal operation for minimal chance of failure. It installs an entire set of system utilities and manual pages (targeted towards networking features) in less than 32MB of disk or flash space. The distribution list can be customized to target other applications, or to use even less space.
