Here is a tutorial for RedHat
http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...Using_iptables

Which, if I remember correctly is pretty much the same as in 'The Linux Quick Notebook' by Harrison. I wouldn't describe this as a beginners tutorial necessarily, so isn't quite what you asked for, but it is good (note that while I describe this as 'for RedHat', in theory it should run on pretty much any Linux distro; the theory doesn't quite work, but if you saw a good tutorial for, say, debian, the iptables part should still work, just the details of how to instantiate your iptables rules at start up and other peripheral bits may not).

Yet further away from what you asked for is http://iptables-tutorial.frozentux.net/
but I regard this as the definitive item; look at this once you have at least skimmed through the other stuff.
