Most definitely.  WiFiDog does not require a specific flavor of  
linux.  As a matter of fact, the central server does not require  
linux at all.  It should run fine on BSDs and I even heard of a rumor  
of it worked on windows.

Certainly.  You'll need a working PostgreSQL database.

Then for the central server, you'll need PHP5.

And for the gateway, you'll need netfilter+iptables.

Nothing distro-specific.  Follow the individual installation  
instructions for the server and for the gateway. If you run into any  
problems let us know the specifics.

Anytime.  Thanks for choosing WiFiDog :)
