RE: Network Routing without Cisco or Juniper?

I have to second that. Riverstone is definitely a solid box.

Featurewise, routing protocols are excellent, but services are not quite
there. (I.E. it doesn't support any IP tunneling protocol in any shape or
form. GRE is extremely useful under some circumstances, but sadly, 
not with riverstone).
