I started out with a Linksys DSL router.  very simple, easy to setup, 
reliable, primitive.  the Linksys does not have nearly the features of a 
full featured firewall like ISA server.
I switched to ISA when it was still in beta and have never looked at a 
Linksys since.  ISA is a much better product, a little harder to setup, 
but worth it.  It has been out for a while now and their are some really 
good books out there two good ones by schindler or something.

Make sure you apply SP1 and Feature Pack 1

The learning curve is only "tremendous" if you are doing things that are 
normal. Some DSL connections require special attention, not because of ISA
but because of DSL. (Dynamic IP, PPPoE, Ameritech, SBC, etc...)

There is a lot of information available at

And yes, Linksys routers are not the best item to use for hosting services
such as e-mail.
