FireStarter missing from F17

As the title said firestarter has been removed from Fedora17. I have been using firestarter to configure my home server to enable Internet connection sharing (ics) on my home server which has a five disk software raid5 array which gets shared out using samba to my home network. I've been upgrading to every other version but now I'm cold in the water.
Firestarter made it easy to configure NAT, DHCP, and install the necessary packages. It also queries from my ISP the name server and appends them to the correct config file and keeps them up to date. Are there and alternatives packages for Fedora 17?
I really believe it is time to change distributions, any suggestions and is it possible to upgrade to the distro?
I would have used WHS2011 but it does not have isc!

There is a default firewall or install something else or compile.
firestarter is deprecated.
