Yeah, I agree a chipo 2500 router should do it, however, I promise you when you get your ccna/ccnp/etc and work on some gear in production, you'd be cussing IOS and cisco why it doesn't work the way you learned it from their books/gears/etc ;-).

Also note that software routers specially quagga is designed to be "very similar" to IOS and in fact, if you understand the IOS syntax, Quagga feels right at home. Specially when you add to the mix your OS skills, it's an unbeatable combination.
Not only you do routing, but also having tools available to you to debug/probe/troubleshoot almost any aspect of the routing.

Good luck!
