You may want to look at netequalizer.com (commercial)
bandwidtharbitrator.com (GPL).  Both versions are built on a linux
bridge and work great for traffic shaping including QoS.  Net
Equalizer has a QoS solution for VoIP.  It's plug-n-play, and you only
need one box for a typical installation.  Bandwidth Arbitrator is
ranked 110 on freshmeat, and it is used fairly heavily.
