I'm setting up a firewall/router for a home network. We're having 3 zones effectively. The server, the home network and the BSD box. When I'm installing do I need to do anything special? Or is a standard install OK, I have installed OpenBSD once before so I kinda remember how to do it, just wondering if there's anything special I need to do.

not life threateningly special, but there are some setup choices you might make to make your life easier, like you may only need to install baseXX.tgz, etcXX.tgz and bsd, possibly manXX.tgz if you want. and your disk layout might reflect its firewall use (i give mine large /var/log's if i have the disk).

Otherwise all the configuring comes after the first boot, which you'll find plenty of docs and howto's on, plus this community will happily assist you in that.
