Question Advice for a noob


Ok fellas heres the deal. I just installed SuSE 7.3, so I guess you could call me a LINUX virgin:P What software firewall do you recomend? Id prefer a GUI front end if possible cos Im new to Linux and am still coming to grips with the command line.

i'd certainly recommend Firestarter, which uses a gtk (gnome, sort of) GUI
