Mandrake has a firewall included. It is installed if you set the security to the high level, but can be manually installed by selecting the proper package during the install.

I would read the documentation included on the install CDs to see what it says about the the firewall. Then make sure it fits your needs.

if you are up for a good firewall, you won't get away with some reading of iptables howto, and if you spend time on that, you won't have troubles setting firewall up manually
